Alex Jones was struck with default judgements in Connecticut and Texas after failing to hand over financial records. Subsequently, Alex Jones may file for bankruptcy following multiple lawsuits.
After being slapped with many lawsuits relating to statements Jones made during the 2012 Sandy Hook school massacre, restructuring advisers are counseling him on how to proceed.
According to Fortune, which cited an anonymous individual with understanding of the situation, Jones’ firms, including Infowars and Free Speech Systems, could file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, which then would enable them to remain functioning while delaying civil litigation against them.
According to court filings, Jones’ attorneys believe the defamation case was initiated as part of a plan to stifle Jones’ free speech on subjects of public importance.
Jones’ request to dismiss states, “[T]his suit is only the latest in Plaintiffs’ efforts to silence those who openly oppose their very public ‘herculean’ efforts to ban the sale of certain weapons, ammunition and accessories, to pass new laws relating to gun registration and to limit free speech.”
