Sandy Hook fam­i­lies win In­fowars rul­ing

Centre Daily Times (Sunday) - - News -

The fam­i­lies of vic­tims in the 2012 mass shoot­ing at Sandy Hook El­e­men­tary School must re­ceive ac­cess to in­ter­nal doc­u­ments at In­fowars, the in­ter­net and ra­dio show whose host, Alex Jones, has spread the false claim that the shoot­ing was a hoax and that the vic­tims were paid “cri­sis ac­tors,” a judge ruled Fri­day.

The rul­ing was a le­gal vic­tory for the fam­i­lies, who in 2018 filed a defama­tion law­suit against Jones and In­fowars. The suit ar­gued that ped­dling bo­gus sto­ries was es­sen­tial to the busi­ness model of In­fowars, which sells prod­ucts in­clud­ing sur­vival­ist gear and gun para­pher­na­lia.
