Attorneys for right-wing radio host Alex Jones and several Sandy Hook families met Thursday before the Connecticut Supreme Court to present oral arguments in a defamation suit by survivors and relatives of the 2012 mass school shooting.

Each side gave oral and rebuttal arguments for about 45 minutes, as the case before the state’s high court centered on two primary issues: whether Jones had the First Amendment right to go on an on-air tirade against Koskoff, Koskoff & Bieder attorney Chris Mattei, and whether Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis overstepped her authority when she sanctioned him for those remarks.
