Alex Jones Ordered to Liquidate Assets to Pay $1.5 Billion Sandy Hook Damages

A federal judge has ordered the liquidation of conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ personal assets to pay the $1.5 billion in damages owed for his false claims about the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

However, the bankruptcy case for Infowars’ parent company, Free Speech Systems, was dismissed.

Jones, who has been urging followers to download his videos and continue buying his dietary supplements, now faces the sale of his personal assets, including a $2.8 million Texas ranch and a gun collection, while likely retaining his primary Austin-area home.

The families of the Sandy Hook victims, who won lawsuits in Texas and Connecticut, sought the liquidation of both Jones’ assets and his company.

While Jones’ personal bankruptcy has been converted to liquidation, Free Speech Systems may continue operating as efforts to collect the damages shift back to state courts.
