BREAKING BUSINESS Judge Freezes Alex Jones’ Assets As He Faces Over $1 Billion In Damages For Spreading Sandy Hook Conspiracy Theories
A Connecticut judge has temporarily frozen conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ assets after concerns were raised that he was “looting” his estate and hiding some of the $965 million in damages he owes to families of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims, according to Bloomberg and Reuters, in the latest legal blow for the InfoWars host.
Judge Barbara Bellis made the ruling due to the possibility Jones is moving his wealth into shell companies run by members of his family.
Bellis ordered Jones to limit his spending to “ordinary living expenses,” according to Bloomberg.
Jones’ attorney argued in a court filing that Bellis’ move to freeze his assets serves to “bolster Mr. Jones’ contention that the results of these proceedings were rigged and that the court appeared partial to the plaintiffs,” Bloomberg reported.
