InfoWars host Alex Jones' civil defamation trial concluded on Wednesday, with a jury ordering Jones pay $965 million to families for "defamation damages" and "emotional stress damages". The case was brought forward by the families of the Sandy Hook massacre in 2012. The jury decided that Jones would pay $965 million in "fair, just, and reasonable" damages.
The payments will go to numerous families of victims of the massacre. Jones claimed that the shooting was orchestrated and that family members were actors who faked the tragedy, a Connecticut jury said on Wednesday.
