Alex Jones files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy as he tries to dodge paying Sandy Hook

After being in the headlines this week for his wild interview with Kanye West, Alex Jones has returned as he just filed for personal bankruptcy protection in Texas.

He filed this Friday for personal bankruptcy - a move to protect his assets from the $1.5 billion court judgments over conspiracy theories he spread about the Sandy Hook school massacre. As we previously reported, he claimed the mass shooting was a complete hoax.

As a result of his actions, a Connecticut jury awarded the families $965 million in compensatory damages, and a judge later added another $473 million in punitive damages back in October. Earlier in the year, a Texas jury also awarded the parents of a child killed in the shooting $49 million in damages. Jones has not shown any interest in paying at all. Instead, he has laughed off the awards on his Infowars show, saying he has less than $2 million to his name and won’t be able to pay such high amounts.
