Alex Jones, InfoWars sued by Sandy Hook parents

The parents of two children killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook school massacre have sued conspiracy theorist Alex Jones for defamation, accusing him and his website InfoWars of engaging in a campaign of "false, cruel, and unsafe assertions".

The two lawsuits were filed on Monday afternoon by Leonard Pozner and Veronique De La Rosa, the parents of 6-year-old Noah Pozner, and by Neil Heslin, the father of 6-year-old Jesse Heslin.

Jones has been a controversial figure and one of the leading voices in the Sandy Hook truther movement, a group that claims the December 14, 2012 shooting never occurred.

The 2012 Sandy Hook shooting left more than 20 people dead. The gunman, Adam Lanza, killed himself as police arrived at the school, but a clear motive for the rampage has never been identified. The June 2017 segment profiled Jones. Heslin counters that he absolutely did hold his son when the body was released to him for burial. Shroyer said Heslin must be lying, because the children were ID'd through photos, not in person.

But that claim is "manifestly false", according to the lawsuit.

De La Rosa is suing Jones for claiming an interview she did with CNN's Anderson Cooper was faked, shot on a blue screen from a remote location away from Newtown. "They glitch", Jones said, per a transcript of the show in the lawsuit.

"The whole thing is a giant hoax".

Jones has been at the forefront of a small, but dedicated, Sandy Hook truther movement for several years. In 2016, Trump praised Jones' "amazing" reputation and vowed, "I will not let you down".

Both families are represented by Houston attorney Mark Bankston, who filed a previous lawsuit against Jones and Infowars for misidentifying the shooter in the recent Parkland school shooting. "Those statements in 2017 were part of a long history of lies peddled by Jones". Although his theory has been discredited, people who believe Jones have harassed and taunted families of the victims. Jones has used his considerable reach to bring these notions and qualms to a wider audience, becoming a figurehead for fringe hypothoses that have mostly prospered on Internet forums.
