Alex Jones faces fines for skipping Sandy Hook deposition


Associated Press

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut judge says Infowars host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones will be fined for each weekday that passes without him appearing for a deposition in a lawsuit brought by relatives of some victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. Judge Barbara Bellis issued the penalty Wednesday after finding Jones in contempt of court for failing to appear at a deposition last week. Jones cited a health problem that included vertigo, which turned out to be a sinus infection. Jones’ lawyer planned to appeal to the state Supreme Court. Relatives of some of the shooting victims are suing Jones for defamation for calling the 2012 shooting a hoax.
