Sandy Hook parents sue InfoWars' conspiracy theorist Alex Jones for defamation

Sandy Hook parents sue InfoWars' conspiracy theorist Alex Jones for defamation

Both lawsuits are seeking more than $1 million in damages from Jones, Infowars and a related company, Free Speech Systems LLC. In the lawsuit, the families allege Jones called the parents "crisis actors" and that Florida resident Lucy Richards agreed so strongly with Jones' claim that the Sandy Hook massacre was a hoax that she made death threats against a victim's family.

Almost six years after gunman Adam Lanza killed dozens of children and faculty members at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, a major conspiracy theorist has been sued for his incendiary comments. Jones is a conservative radio host who has claimed the Sandy Hook shooting never happened. The other suit was filed by Neil Heslin, whose 6-year-old son, Jesse, died.

Two lawsuits were filed in Texas, where Jones is based.

Lewis' parents also named InfoWars reporter Owen Shroyer in their suit, for his "heartless and vile" comment that the boy's father lied in an interview by saying he "held my son with a bullet hole through his head". Thus, InfoWars claimed, the shooting may not have happened as officially reported.

They accused City of acting unethically by tapping up Garré when he was 15 and then breaking rules by signing him when he was 16. It is why a court case that was heard in July a year ago , with a verdict due by the end of September, has been delayed.

Pozner's parents' suit focuses on an April 2017 show, where Jones claimed an interview they did with CNN following the tragedy was bogus, according to the Courant. The children's bodies were eventually turned over to their parents for their funerals, the lawsuit said.

"It took me about a year, with Sandy Hook to come to grips that the whole thing was fake".

Last May, Jones had to settle a lawsuit with Greek yogurt manufacturer Chobani for claiming the company was importing "migrant rapists" in Idaho. MA resident Marcel Fontaine is suing him for falsely reporting he was the Parkland, Fla., high school shooter, who killed 17 students in February.

"Even after these folks had to experience this trauma, for the next five years they were tormented by Alex Jones with vicious lies about them", Mark Bankston, the lawyer for both cases, told the Huffington Post.
