Infowars’ host Alex Jones and three other individuals critical to Infowars’ business operations have been ordered to give sworn deposition in a defamation case filed against the host by surviving families of the Sandy Hook shooting. The ruling judge, Barbara Bellis of Connecticut, previously ruled for Infowars’ to turn over internal financial, business, and marketing documents related to the company’s operations before ordering the individuals in question to depose.
According to the suit, the families allege that, “the Jones defendants concoct elaborate and false paranoia-tinged conspiracy theories because it moves product and they make money not because they truly believe what they are saying, but rather because it increases profits.” Jones has denied all allegations against him.
The shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School occured on December 14th, 2012 where perpetrator Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 students and 6 teachers. According to conspiracy theory, the event was a government set-up with the intent to stir gun control sentiment and that the deaths were also faked.
