Judge in Sandy Hook Case Holds Alex Jones in Contempt of Court, Orders Escalating Fines of $25,000

The attorney handling the Texas case against Alex Jones is Juanita Jean's son. Susan sent me a copy of the letter to the Texas plaintiffs offering the $120,000 per family that Marked stamped with a large bullshit stamp. This is like the 10th set of attorneys used by Jones in this case. These attorneys are pure criminal defense attorneys and fairly weak ones at that.

There was a hearing today that Mark sent Susan the link to 3 minutes before the hearing started. The judge was not happy with Jones

A Connecticut judge on Wednesday afternoon issued a contempt finding against conspiracy theorist and InfoWars host Alex Jones. Fines of $25,000 per day will kick in starting Friday unless and until Jones sits for a deposition, but the fines will be refunded if Jones actually goes through with the deposition he skipped out on due to alleged health concerns last week.

The litigation surrounds alleged defamatory comments Jones made against the families of the victims of the Sandy Hook, Conn. school massacre.

“The argument is on the plaintiffs’ motion for sanctions,” Judge Barbara Bellis said at the beginning of the 47-minute hearing. “This isn’t a press conference,” she continued while warning attorneys not to talk about settlement offers which were summarily rubbished by the plaintiffs Tuesday evening.

Christopher Mattei, an attorney for the plaintiffs, said he didn’t wish to “belabor” the court with all the facts while he and co-counsel were in Texas attempting to take Jones’s deposition last week.

I got to watch part of one of the hearings in the Texas case. The court told Jones that the next depo needed to have someone who can answer a set of questions that Jones has been dodging as to his net worth and assets. That corporate representative did not answer the require questions and there will be another sanctions hearing soon.

Sadly, the fines will be wiped away if he does two full days by April 15... RockRaven Mar 2022 #1

So you can bet he will accumulate a few days worth of fines, go on his show and beg for money citing these unfair fines, then show up for two days and be very time-wasting during the deposition and get the fines eliminated while giving up as little useful info as possible.
