TX Judge Orders Alex Jones , To Pay Full $49 Million Damages Award.

Jones was sued by several Sandy Hook families after pushing the conspiracy theory that the 2012 mass shooting was fake.

.

In August, a jury ruled that Jones is liable to pay $45.2 million in punitive damages and $4.1 million in compensatory damages to parents Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis.

CNN reports that Texas Judge Maya Guerra Gamble made her ruling in favor of the parents on Nov.

22.

In Texas, a cap on damages typically permits plaintiffs to receive up to double the compensatory damages awarded plus up to $750,000.

This often grants defendants the ability to have steep verdicts reduced, but Judge Gamble saw fit to uphold a judgement for the full amount.

.

There’s no question to me that this is a rare instance, I hope it remains a rare instance, where a defendant intentionally inflicted emotional damage in a manner so unusual that the victims had no other recourse, Judge Maya Guerra Gamble, via CNN.

Another defamation lawsuit brought by an additional parent of a child killed at Sandy Hook will go to trial on March 23, 2023.

Previously, eight Sandy Hook families were awarded $1.4 billion in a Connecticut case brought against Jones.

.

Jones, who filed for bankruptcy protection earlier this year, has repeatedly said he doesn't have enough money to pay the damages
