Judge Rules Alex Jones Can’t Use Bankruptcy Protection to Avoid Paying $1B to Sandy Hook Families

Infowars host Alex Jones will not be able to use Bankruptcy protection to avoid paying $1.1 billion to Sandy Hook massacre victims’ families, a Texas judge ruled.

The ruling was issued by US District Judge Christopher Lopez of Houston on Thursday.

“The families are pleased with the Court’s ruling that Jones’s malicious conduct will find no safe harbor in the bankruptcy court,” said lawyer Christopher Mattei, who represents the families.

“As a result, Alex Jones will continue to be accountable for his actions into the future regardless of his claimed bankruptcy.”

Jones filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last year and, according to more recent financial documents submitted by his attorneys.

Lopez ruled that bankruptcy protection does not apply over findings of “willful and malicious” conduct.

In a video posted to his Infowars website, Jones said the judge’s ruling will have little practical impact because he is more than $1 million in debt personally and lacks the funds to pay the Sandy Hook families and that he continues to appeal the verdicts.

“It’s all academic. I don’t have a million dollars,” Jones said.

“My company has a few million, but that’s just to pay the bills and my product in the future.

“So we are literally on empty,” Joens continued.

“So this idea that … we’re going to take your money away doesn’t exist because the money doesn’t exist. It’s all political.”

“At the end of the day, they won’t take my free speech away,” he added.

“I’m still going to be on the air one way or another.”

Fox News reported:

Jones’s legal troubles stem from claims about the deadliest school shooting in US history at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, where a gunman killed 26 people in December 2012.

Jones has been asking his audience to donate to him and shop on the Infowars website, so he can continue his program and pay his legal costs.

Last year, Sandy Hook families won nearly $1.5 billion in judgments against Jones in lawsuits over repeated claims of a false theory that the school shooting never happened.

However, Jones could end up owing the Sandy Hook families even more, as another lawsuit brought by the parents of one of the children killed in the shooting is pending in Texas.

The victims’ families testified at the trials, claiming they were harassed and threatened by Jones’ supporters.

The families claim they received threats and were even confronted in person while being accused of being “crisis actors.”
