Infowars’ Alex Jones loses Texas bid to stop defamation lawsuit

Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones lost a bid to dismiss a defamation lawsuit brought against him by the parents of a boy killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook school massacre, Reuters reported, citing court documents released on Thursday. Judge Scott Jenkins in Travis County, Texas, where Jones lives, said Jones’ motion to dismiss the lawsuit was “in all respects denied.”Jones has used his media platform Infowars to call the mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school, which killed 26 people, a hoax, and suggested a political cover-up took place by left-wing forces seeking to take advantage of the shooting to promote gun control. Leonard Pozner and Veronique De La Rosa, whose 6-year-old son Noah was murdered at Sandy Hook, said they sued because they were harassed and forced to move seven times after Jones called them liars and frauds, according to the documents.
