BRIDGEPORT - Conspiracy theorist and InfoWars host Alex Jones sent child pornography to the lawyers for the families of the Sandy Hook tragedy, their lawyers said. The law firm representing the families of the 2012 mass shooting, stated in court documents filed Monday they have contacted the FBI after discovering child porn in electronic files Jones recently turned over to the Sandy Hook families as a result of their lawsuit against him for calling the tragedy a hoax. Jones publicly responded on a broadcast of his show that he is being framed by Chris Mattei, the lawyer for the Sandy Hook families and went on making what Mattei and his law firm, Koskoff, Koskoff and Bieder claim are threats against them. "You're trying to set me up with child porn, I'll get your ass," Jones states on the broadcast. "One million dollars, you little gang members. One million dollars to put your head on a pike." Jones then pounds a photograph of Mattei and goes into a rant at one point stating, "I'm gonna kill..." Jones' lawyer, Norman Pattis, denied his client was threatening Mattei or the Sandy Hook families and urged people to watch the broadcast for themselves. https://www.infowars.com/exclusive-alex-jones-responds-to-sandy-hook-child-porn-set-up/ "Mr. Jones was upset, he did not threaten Mr. Mattei," Pattis said. "He spoke in a compassionate fashion." But in court documents filed Monday, the lawyers for the Sandy Hook families asked a court to take immediate action against Jones. "This court has an obligation to protect the attorneys, parties and the judicial process," they state. A hearing has been scheduled before Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis on...
NEWTOWN - Extremist Alex Jones' latest court trouble involves more than routine pre-trial wrangling with the Sandy Hook families who are suing him for defamation. The real fight is over the families' claim that the conspiracies Jones promoted as the frontman of Infowars were calculated to drive business to his internet supplements business. The heart of the court case came out in dueling motions filed over the last two weeks by the families, who accuse Jones of deliberately withholding information about his business strategy to hide his motives, and by Jones, who accuses the families of having no proof and of making him fish at his own expense for documents that don't exist. "The (families) proceed at their own peril by insisting that Jones defendants engage in sophisticated editorial content-making, targeting stories to products and seeking to stimulate sales by means of peddling known falsehoods likely to go viral," wrote Jones' attorney Norman Pattis. "Simply put, there is no evidence to support the claim that the Jones defendants knowingly market falsehoods for financial gain." The judge overseeing the case has sided with the family, ordering Jones under threat of punishment to turn over to the families the missing business records in question. "[T]he court will consider appropriate sanctions for (Jones') failure to fully comply should (he) not produce the data in one week," state Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis ruled Monday. If it seems as though Jones has been in trouble with this judge before, he has. In March, Bellis said she was fed up with Jones' delays in turning over documents to the families, and threatened to throw out his motion to dismiss their case. In...
