A Connecticut judge has ruled that Inforce host Alex Jones will be fined $ 25,000 to $ 50,000 per week until he appears in a case brought by relatives of some of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
Hartford, Con. – A Connecticut judge said Wednesday that Inforce host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones will be fined $ 25,000 to $ 50,000 a week until he appears in a case brought by relatives of some of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
Jones’s testimony is being sought before the trial to determine how much compensation the family will have to pay for pushing a conspiracy theory that the genocide never took place.
Bayliss further ruled that the deposition would now be held at the family attorney’s office in Bridgeport, Connecticut, instead of Texas, where Jones resides.
Jones’ lawyers say he missed the statement only because of the advice of his doctors and always planned to take part in the case. They said he would be available for a statement next April 11.
In December 2012, 20 first graders and six teachers were killed in a shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. The gunman, Adam Lanza, 20, killed his mother at their Newtown home before the shooting and committed suicide at the school as police arrived, officials said.
The families of eight of the victims and an FBI agent who responded to the school have sued Jones, Infors and others in Connecticut for conspiracy to commit fraud. Jones has since said he believes the shooting happened.
Plaintiffs on Tuesday rejected Jones’ offer to settle সাথে 120,000 each with them.
