Sandy Hook 'hoax' claim: Alex Jones sued by parents of massacre victims

Sandy Hook 'hoax' claim: Alex Jones sued by parents of massacre victims

The two lawsuits - filed on behalf of Leonard Pozner, Veronique De La Rosa and Neil Heslin - arised out of accusations the lawsuits state were made by InfoWars in 2017.

The shooting left 26 people dead, including 20 children, in 2012.

Two separate suits were filed in Travis County District Court in Austin Tuesday morning, the first time Jones has been sued for his Sandy Hook comments.

Last May, Jones had to settle a lawsuit with Greek yogurt manufacturer Chobani for claiming the company was importing "migrant rapists" in Idaho.

Brennan Gilmore, 38, said in that lawsuit that Jones and InfoWars published stories that damaged his reputation and led to threats against him. The other lawsuit alleges that Heslin was accused of "lying about whether he actually held his son's body and observed a bullet hole in his head".

Bankston is also representing a MA man who is suing Jones for falsely identifying him as the gunman in the Parkland school shooting.

"The statements were a continuation and elaboration of a years-long campaign to falsely attack the honesty of the Sandy Hook parents, casting them as participants in a ghastly conspiracy and cover-up", the plaintiffs said in their suits.

Infowars reporter Owen Shroyer is also named in Heslin's lawsuit.

During the piece Cooper's nose seems to disappear leading Jones to claim that they are both actors and his nose "disappears repeatedly because the green screen isn't set right".

Jones has been at the forefront of a small, but dedicated, Sandy Hook truther movement for several years.

Jones has used his considerable reach to bring these notions and qualms to a wider audience, becoming a figurehead for fringe hypothoses that have mostly prospered on Internet forums.
