    Verdict: Alex Jones ordered to pay additional $45.2m in punitive damages by Texas jury

    Alex Jones has been ordered to pay $45.2m in punitive damages to the family of a Sandy Hook victim by a Texas jury, in addition to the $4.11m he already must pay them in compensation.

    The right-wing conspiracy theorist was not in court as the jury in Travis County, Texas, returned its unanimous verdict against him on Friday afternoon.

    Jones and his company now owe a total of $49.1m.

    A little extra……

    Along with the judgments, Jones will have to pay an additional $1.5 million in sanctions, Houston attorney Mark Bankston told HuffPost.

    That should cripple Jones. I just hate they aren’t able to lock the jackass up.

    ...not at all...he has wealthy donors who can take up the slack and millions of small-donation minions who sympathize with his truly pathetic nonsense. Financial advisers will show him how to use bankruptcy (business and personal) to avoid or substantially reduce payment. The only thing that might make him lose sleep is the J6 committee reviewing his emails and possible insurrection-related legal action that involves jail penalties...

    Note that this is the first of three such cases he's facing.

    The next one is in September.

    Apparently he has tried filing for bankruptcy before, and it has been thrown out because it was a clear attempt at trying to shield himself from liability. The current one is under review.

    So an award far lower than his estimated net worth may be merely the first of death by a thousand (well OK, three) cuts.

    The word "schadenfreude" perfectly describes how I feel. Jones is an evil fooker that will say anything to make a buck from the ignorant.

    Pathetic strawman attempt by Jones, he didn't 'savage' anyone.
    The question was, "did you accuse government officials....?"
    The prosecutor should have been quicker with his comeback when Jones said "like Epstein?"
    "Um no, I said you accused government officials, Epstein was never a government official"

    I saw a report the other day (sorry, no link) that said his organization was making up to 800,000 USD a day. So probably no biggie really. But you can see he HATES being put on the spot.

    ^I saw the same article and thought nothing more of it.

    Get a calculator.

    A financial expert testifying for the parents of a child killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting has estimated that Alex Jones and his media company are worth between $135m and $270m as they seek punitive damages beyond the $4.1m they secured a day ago for the US conspiracy theorist’s falsehoods about the massacre.


    The expert, Bernard Pettingill, said from the witness stand in an Austin courtroom that Jones and his Free Speech Systems company earned more than $50m annually between 2016 to 2021 – even as popular social media companies banned him from promoting himself through them – due to his “rabid following” of millions.

    Of course the reputational damage of sitting in a courtroom with everyone exposing you as a liar should be taken into account.

    The less thick ones might start to think he's lying about his shit "virility potions" working as well.

    As backspit correctly points out (for once) Texas does have a cap on punitive damages, which may reduce this to little more than a slap on the wrist. Lets hope the people selected for the next two trials hear all about the cap.
