WHAT WE’RE WATCHING
DEFAMATION WARS – Attorneys representing right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and families of the victims of the Sandy Hook shooting are due to appear before the Connecticut Supreme Court today. The court is considering Jones’ motion to dismiss a 2018 defamation suit the families filed against him that alleges the Texas-based host of InfoWars helped perpetuate a conspiracy theory that the December 2012 shooting that killed 26 people was a hoax that never happened. Jones has invoked a state anti-SLAPP statute that provides defendants with an expedited means to seek dismissal of lawsuits that impinge on free speech.
