Judge Barbara Bellis took the rare step of defaulting the conspiracy theorist and Infowars host in the defamation lawsuits. She will hold a hearing on how much damages he should pay.
Judge Barbara Bellis took the rare step of defaulting Jones in the defamation lawsuits for his and his company’s “failure to produce critical material information that the plaintiffs needed to prove their claims.” The default means the judge found in favor of the parents and will hold a hearing on how much damages he should pay.
Monday’s ruling marks the fourth defamation lawsuit Jones has lost against Sandy Hook families, including three in Texas.
“While the families are grateful for the Court’s ruling, they remain focused on uncovering the truth,” Chris Mattei, an attorney representing the families that sued Jones, said in a statement Monday.
