And in Connecticut, the families of six victims of the 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School scored a legal victory Friday when a judge ruled they can access internal documents from conservative conspiracy theorist and internet personality Alex Jones and his website InfoWars. The families of the victims argue that Jones fabricated and perpetuated lies about the Sandy Hook massacre, portraying the event as a hoax and the victims’ families as paid actors. They say Jones engaged in a “years-long campaign of abusive and outrageous false statements,” which resulted in online harassment and death threats against the plaintiffs. The massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary claimed the lives of 20 schoolchildren, ages 6 and 7, and six school staff members.
