For years, Alex Jones and InfoWars have shocked the world with malicious false statements about national tragedies, including the school shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, and Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Now, Farrar & Ball attorneys are helping the victims of those false statements fight back.
This webpage provides public information on the three defamation lawsuits filed against Mr. Jones and InfoWars by Farrar & Ball. Two of the lawsuits seek to hold Mr. Jones accountable for his vile assertions that the Sandy Hook parents were lying about what happened to their children, as well as his claims that these parents conspired with the media to fake news coverage. The third lawsuit was filed on behalf of a 24-year-old man who was wrongly accused of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.
In the interest of public transparency, Farrar & Ball is providing open access to all legal pleadings filed in these cases, as well key documents and evidence produced in the lawsuit.
