A Connecticut judge ruled far-right conspiracy theorist and InfoWars host Alex Jones was liable for damages in lawsuits brought by families of children killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, after Jones failed to turn over documents to the court.

The 2012 massacre claimed the lives of 20 schoolchildren and six educators.
