Alex Jones finally admitted that the Sandy Hook school shooting really happened, but it failed to appease the plaintiff’s lawyers who were seeking a $150M judgment against Jones for general defamation of their clients, including unnamed federal officials who claim to be defamed by conspiracy facts which point to this shooting as a government-backed operation using a mind-controlled shooter, with a government handler present to make sure Adam Lanza killed himself as he was programmed to do. That handler was observed by students being led away in handcuffs but never charged or had his name revealed.
If this novel legal precedent holds, it puts all of us who claim the government is involved in false flag conspiracies at risk of lawsuits by “aggrieved” federal agents—the very ones who know the government created the crisis and yet hide behind the veil of state secrets. As Mike Cernovich wrote, “the Alex Jones precedent means if you don’t accept the Vegas shooting explanation, then FBI agents can sue you because you’re calling them liars by implication.” He’s right.
But as the Daily Mail reported,
Mark Bankston, the lawyer for parents, revealed Jones’s lawyer accidentally sent two years of the conspiracy theorist’s text messages that appear to directly contradict his sworn testimony. The inconsistency in the testimony could serve to undermine Jones’s credibility in the civil case, but legal experts say he exposed himself to a perjury charge that could carry up to 10 years in prison in Texas.
But before an honest judge, this evidence would be thrown out as a violation of attorney client privilege, as Joseph Watson of newswars.com points out:
An emergency protective order motion has been filed in the Alex Jones case relating to claims in court that lawyers had inadvertently obtained years worth of Jones’ phone records, with emails showing Plaintiffs had not been given approval to use the material in court as it would violate attorney client privilege.
In short, Jones’ lawyer’s legal assistant had mistakenly sent the plaintiff attorneys a link that allowed them access to all of Alex Jones phone and text messages, which ended up showing that Alex Jones did not tell the whole truth in answering certain questions.
It was not lawful for the plantiff’s attorneys to use that mistaken access to Jones’ attorney’s files because Jones’ attorney had specifically instructed Bankston to “disregard” that link, but Bankston did so anyway in violation of Jones’ attorney client confidentiality. However, the judge Maya Guerra Gamble, who has shown a lot of anti-Jones bias during the trial is likely to try and find a way to rule against the protective order.
Just in: The jury returned and determined that, “Alex Jones must pay the parents of Sandy Hook victim Jesse Lewis damage awards totaling $4.1 million, an Austin jury determined Thursday — far below the $150 million requested.
But the financial hit against Jones and his main company, Free Speech Systems, might not be over. In the next phase of the trial to begin Friday morning, jurors will be asked to issue punitive damages that are intended as punishment after hearing testimony from the parents’ economic expert on the net worth of Jones and his company, Free Speech Systems.

Alex Jones responded to this trial with two amazing facts:
1) That the biased judge told the jury over 20 times that Alex Jones was guilty. That’s grounds for a mistrial if there was any fairness in this case.
2) That in the coming punitive damages phase, that Alex Jones cannot testify in his own behalf and his lawyers cannot provide any evidence. In short, Alex Jones is not going to be allowed to defend himself. As I keep saying: the Constitution is dead in this nation if the government is out to get you.
