This can lead to one of 2 things:

  1. Contempt of court and a short stay in prison; or
  2. Striking the his Answer and judgment rendered for the plaintiff followed by a visit by State Marshals to demand payment.

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…

Don’t worry about the stress, Alex. The courtroom is a designated safe space.

It’s called, “contempt of court”, and the person is typically arrested and jailed for refusing to appear.

It ain’t rocket science. Prosecuters need to start adding more charges to these assholes’ records every time they evade the law - which is exactly what he is doing.

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.

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.
