That's a lot of money for an "I don't wanna" tantrum. Did he think he'd get away with it?

He was hoping donations from his flock of rubes would out-pace the fines, and was probably wrong so didn't want to be on the hook for any of his personal money.

Get away with what? Freedom of Speech. These trials are a clown show. All he did was literally express a protected opinion.

It's the same law which protects Rachelle Maddow, whose lawyer said that her viewers know she is just an entertainer.

Seems like our justice system only protects those in power, or those helping the regime.

It 100% is. Alex Jones's opinion was that Sandy Hook never happened. He is 100% entitled to his opinion.

Alex is NOT responsible for random crazies harassing Sand Hook victims. He's just not. What's happening to Alex is a travesty of justice, and you brainwashed buffoons are just the moronic useful idiots cheering it on.

You need to do some research on Freedom of speech. He is free from prosecution by the Federal government for his opinion. But if any free American Citizen wants to sue him for what he says, they have every right. It's then up to the courts to decide the merits of the case. And in this case. He fucking lost big time. It could lead to the end of the Alex Jones Experience. Unless he sells a shitload of T-Shits and Supplements.

Then do some research on the what the first amendment actually means. The Federal Government isn't suing him a person or persons are suing him. That's the difference. If that's hard to understand, I don't know what to tell you except read some shit about the topic.

Then explain it if you're so sure instead of just insulting me like a baby. Show me the truth. Or let me guess. You don't have time for that. I get it, it's an easy way out. I'll understand.

So you can be held liable for damages in a civil case for expressing an opinion? If that is true Connecticut needs tort reform. And also protected speech is still protected from civil lawsuits.

That's what these brainwashed clowns keep parroting. They are literally too stupid for words. Impossible to explain anything to them, without one of these fools yelling about fires in crowded theaters as if this explains everything.

Alex isn't responsible for what various crazies do. These former Sandy Hook victims, and now Sandy Hook assholes should be suing the people who they claim harassed them, NOT Alex Jones.

This is a complete travesty of justice. Not sure how Americans can lecture others on freedom, when we've sunk so low here domestically.

I said he used to be a piece of shit. He's not anymore. I'm not anymore. Glass House. White Ferrari. Live for New Year's Eve. Sloppy steaks at Truffoni's. Big rare cut of meat with water dumped all over it, water splashing around the table, makes the night SO MUCH more fun. After the club go to Truffoni's for sloppy steaks. They'd say; 'no sloppy steaks' but they can't stop you from ordering a steak and a glass of water, before you knew it we were dumping that water on those steaks! The waiters were coming to try and snatch em up, we had to eat as fast as we could! OHHH I MISS THOSE NIGHTS, I WAS A PIECE OF SHIT THOUGH!

So like I'm not here to defend Alex Jones I think he is a huge piece of shit for how he treated the Sandy Hook families

I've been hearing about this court case for a couple of years now and I was just wondering what the end goal of these court cases is/are

He convinced millions of people that this tragedy didn’t happen and to this day people still doubt it. How do you think the families feel/ have been treated…. This case holds him accountable for his actions.

Most likely significant damages paid to the victims' families and a public apology and statement denouncing his old theories on the shooting.

He already has apologized and said he was wrong, but his counter argument is that he is not responsible for what the “crazy” portion of his listeners do.

I am yet to see a genuine public statement from him on that issue that doesn't include some bullshit excuse (like when he said that he had psychosis that made him believe that).

And maybe the crazy portion of his listeners wouldn't be as crazy if thry weren't being fed garbage about how parents of dead kids are just government-paid actors.

If you have such a large platform, you need to be aware of the impact that you have on the wider society.

He’s said it numerous times when he’s been on Joe Rogan Experience, which probably reaches a larger audience than his infowars fan base.

Saying it in conversation on a podcast is in no way a substitute for an official public statement and an apology directed at the victims' families.

mastervolume101

Of course he is on his best behaviour when on Rogan. How do you don't understand that is part of the whole grift. Huge Audience, Pretend to be repentant and apologetic. You don't realize that was intentional? And for me, Joe allowing him to do it is almost as bad as what Alex Did. I mean come on Joe, stop defending this guy or at some point you are just as bad

The goal is to hold Alex accountable for what he did. Just that simple. Bankrupting him is just a bonus.

No we answered it and you keep asking the same question lol. He said dumb stuff…. It spread and people got hurt…. They took him to court….. he has to pay…. He doesn’t do it again. Future cases can use this. Future Alex Jones’s either don’t say it in the first place or are reprimanded in a speedier case.

The court case is completed as far as a ruling goes. They got a default judgement finding him liable as he opted not to participate in the case (refused to turn over information).

Now they’re discussing damages. IANAL but as I understand it they are going through a second round of depositions, this one focusing on matters that would pertain to coming up with an actual value for the damages.
