Sandy Hook: Second trial for “damages” in frivolous suit vs. Jones begins

Source: The Guardian [UK]

“A Connecticut jury began hearing arguments Tuesday in a trial to decide how much money the US conspiracy theorist Alex Jones should pay relatives of victims of the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting for spreading a lie that the massacre was a hoax. … It is the second such trial in just a few weeks for Jones, who was ordered by a Texas jury last month to pay nearly $50m to the parents of one of the children who was killed. … [Judge Barbara] Bellis instructed the jury that Jones and his company, Free Speech Systems, have already been found liable for damages [sic] to the plaintiffs for calling the shooting a hoax on multiple media platforms and saying that no one died.” (09/13/22)
