This can lead to one of 2 things:
- Contempt of court and a short stay in prison; or
- Striking the his Answer and judgment rendered for the plaintiff followed by a visit by State Marshals to demand payment.
…citing a “sinus blockage.”
Yeah that can happen when you have your head up your own ass.
I read a transcript of part of the proceedings. Jones’s lawyers were in the middle of arguing that he had to stay home for medical reasons and then the opposing counsel basically stepped up to tell the judge “we have reason to believe Jones is doing a live broadcast from his studio right now.”
That is a very, very specific level of sick and the judge did not appear to be buying what they were selling.
Not helping is the fact that for the last 3 years everything in civil courts that didn’t involve a jury trial has been done by teleconference: appearances, depositions, arguments…
How the fuck does he think the families of dead elementary school children feel being harassed by conspiracy theorist HE unleashed…
In unrelated news, high stress levels can lead to heart attacks.
Waaah go to court you Man-Baby.
Well, just imagine how much stress jail time would cause.
Don’t worry about the stress, Alex. The courtroom is a designated safe space.
So he’s a snowflake and finally become the thing he sought to destroy.
It’s called, “contempt of court”, and the person is typically arrested and jailed for refusing to appear.

His continued existence causes me significant stress.
His argument seems to be that it would be too physically taxing to appear in court given that he’s suffering the lingering cardiovascular effects of his bout with Covid-19.
You know, the virus that Jones still insists nobody should get vaccinated against because the vaccine is worse than the disease.
Because he has a cold??? WTAF, you jackass! You think the shit you pulled on these parents over the years didn’t cause them stress? Eat shit and fuck a honey badger, you asshat!
He can be transported by the elderly appointment van and pay to have his personal physician in attendance.
What a pathetic, weak little man he is.
Ok fair alternative: He gets to hunker under a school desk while people shoot at him. Shouldn’t be stressful, I mean according to him that’s not stressful or bad or anything right? He should be looking forward to it since it’s such a walk in the park for little kids.
