Alex Jones, scumbag
« on: April 08, 2022, 12:41:17 PM »
Now that Info Wars guy Alex Jones is finally being held to account for all of his defamation of the Sandy Hook families, he is trying to hide his assets.

What a despicable person

Alex Jones complete scumbag.

Wondering how people say and do things like that and are just now getting punished financially.

Meanwhile, Phil Mickelson says the following about a Saudi golf league and withdraws from public life?

Quote
"They're scary motherf****** to get involved with," Mickelson said in the interview posted on the golf website Fire Pit Collective.

"We know they killed [Washington Post reporter and U.S. resident Jamal] Khashoggi and have a horrible record on human rights. They execute people over there for being gay. Knowing all of this, why would I even consider it?"

Saudi Arabia killed Khashoggi and they have a horrible human rights record.

I'm not sure why this has sparked outrage, apologies, and withdrawing from golf tournaments, including the Masters.

Now Infowars has filed for Bankruptcy.  I hope the judge denies this.

You didn't mention why InfoWars had to file for bankruptcy, msquared.

Quote
Jones claimed the shooting, in which 20 children and six school employees were shot dead at the school in Newtown, Connecticut, was fabricated by gun-control advocates and mainstream media.

Sandy Hook families in late March rejected Jones' offer to settle their defamation lawsuit and reopened the case. Jones had offered to pay $120,000 to each of the 13 plaintiffs to settle the case.

Each of the plaintiffs turned down the settlement offer in court documents, saying, "The so-called offer is a transparent and desperate attempt by Alex Jones to escape a public reckoning under oath with his deceitful, profit-driven campaign against the plaintiffs and the memory of their loved ones lost at Sandy Hook."

None the parents of the slain children would take his money after he used their dead children for propaganda purposes.  Righteous wrath at it's finest.

Nothing like paying millions of dollars to your shell company to try to avoid any liability.

Probably isn't going to help his case that he has been so uncooperative that the judges have issued summary judgements against him.

Maybe they will be able to collect some of the money.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/alex-jones-hit-1-million-202611275.html

I wonder how he will try and spin this as someone trying to suppress his free speech. I guess he did not read the part about where you were not able to defame people and lie about them, especially to make money off of it.

Alex Jones has been caught committing perjury. He has lied under oath about having Sandy Hook text messages on his phone. His own lawyer accidently sent the full text history to the lawyers of the plaintiffs.

I'm not sure how the lawyer could 'accidentally' send them.

I'd think the lawyer was required to turn them over as part of discovery?

Also isn't the lawyer required to tell the court when their client has committed perjury if they are aware of the fact that their client has done so?

yeah I think the lawyer is going to be in trouble. Maybe he realizes that his client will not have any money to pay, since he has already been found guilty and this is just the penalty phase. I wonder how much of a retainer he got.

I assume Jones can sue the lawyer for malpractice?  He might get disbarred.  Can you appeal a awarded amount based on malpractice?

Hearing Alex complain about how he has been found guilty and the judge explaining to him that this is a civil trial and he has been found liable, which is a very different thing, almost makes me think Alex is not as smart as he thinks he is.  And he was found liable due to his resistance to doing anything in the trial other than obstruct.

He can not believe that someone is finally holding him accountable for all of his lies.

Not all of his lies. Just for one very specific, disgusting one, and his sovereign citizen attitude towards the civil trials that led to default judgements of liability against him. The proceedings now are just to decide how much he owes. We'll see how much he pissed off the judge with committing perjury. That is something that could be referred to a criminal court and he could be found guilty.

Jones can sue his lawyer but I don't think an appeal is possible. The malpractice is even worse because the lawyer had 10 days to remedy the mistake which they failed to do. Since they didn't tell the other side to send the erroneously provided information back it's open season on it. The Jan 6th committee has already expressed an interest in Jones' communications.

I think if Jones is not charged with perjury it will look bad.  This case is too public to let him off.  Couldn't happen to a more deserving individual.

I wonder if one of the attorneys submitted the emails as evidence?  Wouldn't that make it part of the trial, which is "public" information?  Which would mean that the January 6th Committee would only have to file a request to the court to get them, right? :D

If this is malpractice  i wonder if they can be used? The plaintiff's lawyer says he notified Jones's attorney about the info he was sent to see if any of it was protected under privilege and Jones's attorney seems to not have given any reply for 12 days ( I assume that means something in the legal field about the evidence). Jones might be able to argue that since it was given under the idea of malpractice it should not be public evidence.

Well the jury came back with 4.1 million in compensatory damages. Friday they get to determine punitive damages.

Those emails are a gift that keep on giving.

As summarized at Electoral-vote.com in their This Week in Schadenfreude section, there are a few other things those emails may have revealed.

First, some of the things we already know:

Quote
Jones turned the complete contents of his cell phone over to his defense team. And the defense team turned them over to the plaintiffs... without redacting or withholding any of them. The plaintiffs know all. And once the gaffe was revealed, Judge Maya Guerra Gamble refused to declare a mistrial or to seal the contents of the phone. We are assuming that she ruled on the merits, but it surely didn't help Jones' case that he's been going on air and slamming her as an idiot while the hearings are still underway. In any case, Gamble said there might have been time for such considerations if Jones hadn't disrespected the trial process and dragged his feet on discovery, but now he must reap what he sowed. Reading between the lines, it sure looks like the plaintiffs aren't the only ones in the courtroom who hate Jones. The judge and his own attorneys apparently hate him, as well.

And it still gets better. Everyone who's been looking at Jones, and hitting a brick wall, now wants a copy of the treasure trove. That includes the Dept. of Justice and the 1/6 Committee. And the plaintiffs' attorney is delighted to send it to them. He specifically told the judge he would do so unless she put a stop to it. She issued no such order.
(Emphasis mine.)

So it looks like the emails may have already been distributed, regardless of any possible lawsuits about attorney incompetence. :)

And then there is the other stuff...

Quote
There appear to be other... goodies on the phone that could prove embarrassing or incriminating. For example, there have been allusions during the current proceedings to "intimate messages" between Jones and Roger Stone. Who knows what exactly that means, but we could totally see them being gay for each other. In a much more criminal direction, a filing in one of the other Sandy Hook cases—those plaintiffs' lawyers already got their USB sticks with all the text messages—asserts that child porn has been found on the phone.

And who knows what else may be in those emails?  ;D

In case you are interested, the site has links in each paragraph to the article each was based on.

So is this Alex Jones a psychopath, sociopath, deranged, narcissist,  evil, a con man... a person with a agenda to which the ends justify the means.
I personal never believed that he believed anything he said and somewhere in that lie lost himself

I don't think the jury likes Alex Jones, either.

$45.2 million in punitive damages.

Alex Jones sent Roger Stone nude pictures of his wife with out her knowledge or consent. So much for the morality of either of these men.

Or the opposing council. He seems really happy to share as much of Jones's info with the Jan 6th committee, law enforcement, or other people suing Jones as the judge will allow. And the judge hates Jones and doesn't seem to be in any mood to restrict his ability to distribute the material to anyone else.
