The offer was a "desperate attempt by Alex Jones to escape a public reckoning under oath with his deceitful, profit-driven campaign against the plaintiffs," lawyers for the families said.

...Infowars host Alex Jones offered to pay $120,000 per plaintiff to resolve a lawsuit by relatives of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims who said he defamed them by asserting the massacre never happened, according to court filings Tuesday. The offer was quickly rejected by the families....

The court filings posted online said: "Mr. Jones extends his heartfelt apology for any distress his remarks caused."...

... and ...

..."With me it was never about money " it was about principle," said Neil Heslin, whose son Jesse was among the 20 first-graders and six educators slain at Sandy Hook Elementary School. "I'm not surprised Jones would try to settle before this goes to trial, but I am going to trial to fight him. I am going to argue the whole thing."...

"Mr. Jones extends his heartfelt apology for any distress his remarks caused."

What a weak non-apology apology.

Dude owes me at least $120K for the distress he's caused with his verbal ------------. He owes the parents of those deceased kids considerably more for his defamation.

...A Superior Court judge on Wednesday found conspiracy theorist and Infowars host Alex Jones in contempt of court and imposed a fine of up to $50,000 a day for what she called his "willful" violation of her orders that he submit to questioning at a deposition by families of victims of the Sandy Hook School killings....

It looks like Mr Jones' delay tactics may be beginning to cost him...

Alex Jones avoids jail, faces escalating $25K daily fine until he complies with Sandy Hook testimony order

...Alex Jones was penalized with an escalating daily fine of $25,000 for "intentionally failing to comply with the orders of the court" to give pretrial testimony in the defamation case he lost in Connecticut to eight families whose loved ones were slain in the Sandy Hook shooting.

The fine, which could accumulate into six figures in as quickly as four days, was imposed Wednesday by state Supreme Court Judge Barbara Bellis after Jones twice defied court orders last week to sit for a deposition, citing doctors' orders to refrain from stressful activity.

"The court finds by clear and convincing evidence that Mr. Jones willfully and in bad faith and without justification failed to abide by clear court orders requiring his deposition," Bellis said during a midday hearing, where she also held him in contempt of court.

Bellis, who could have issued an order for Jones' arrest to compel him to testify instead said the escalating daily fine would begin on Friday and would end only after Jones completed a full day's deposition....

Bankrupt him and throw his worthless ass in prison.

As an aside and purely my own opinion...

The Sandy Hook area of Newtown, CT is not one to be trifled with.

I've rode my bicycle through that area of Newtown many times.

In my interactions with the Newtown police, I'd say that they are quite good.

The Sandy Hook area of Newtown is a GOP-leaning area (possible understatement).

In other words, methinks Mr Jones may have bitten off more than he can chew here.

And he has finally realized that.

And his lame "stress-related" requests for court postponements may be quite indicative of his fear to face his assertions under oath.

Take it all. He's a ghoul who is getting what he deserves.

"citing doctors' orders to refrain from stressful activity."

There is no stress in telling the truth.

Take his radio program and make it into a mouthpiece for Any Antifa guy/gal who wants to go on the radio. As for Jones, give him the same treatment that James Byrd got down in Texas...

Anyone know where I can get some mental health awareness stickers? I want to put them on a colleagues wall next to his infowars ones.

They will get so much more than $120k per plaintiff at trial.

He will be working the rest of his life to pay this judgment.

If sandyhook familes can sue someone for lying about their kids to the world and causing trauma, can the rest of america sue trump for lying about the election to the world and causing trauma?

Sure there is - when you have been lying right along and you have all your wealth your ex-wife hasn't taken on the line.

Like Dominion vs. Lindell/Powell/Guliani, they got him by the bald and curlies.

I bet several families would forego financial compensation in exchange for being given a 2x4 and two minutes alone with Alex Jones in a private location.

A Louisville slugger and 30 seconds.
