I believe there are more than a dozen other families involved in similar suits against him. I know that Alex Jones and his company are reportedly worth over $270 Million but if even a few more cases go this way they might just succeed in bankrupting his sorry ass for good. Can’t happen soon enough.

2 families paid, 19 more to go. Those 19 are not in a state with “tort reform” limits.

Sadly Texas being Texas, it likely will be limited to a multiple of the compensatory damages, so maybe $10 - $12 million at most… but that’s going to be fought for and appealed against too , and this is just one family with 19 to go, and not all states have such caps.

Hopefully this will also deter other media outlets from allowing the likes of Jones to spew their bile.

Can they put a lien on the money he makes from the inevitable martyr angle he’ll be playing?

Unfortunately, the damages will likely be capped pretty low.

Where do I get in line for damages for the whiplash I get shaking my head every time I hear this clown lie? I promise, I’ll give every penny to the Sandy Hook parents.

I just got back from a short getaway with my wife. Just found out about this. The day just keeps getting better.

I hope the accountants he hired to hide his .o ey are as competent as the lawyers he hired to defend him in this case.
