Infowars founder Alex Jones interacts with supporters at the Texas State Capital building on April 18, 2020 in Austin, Texas. The protest was organized by Infowars host Owen Shroyer who is joining other protesters across the country in taking to the streets to call for the country to be opened up despite the risk of the COVID-19.

  • Alex Jones had a settlement offer of $120,000 per person.

  • The relatives said the offer was an attempt by Jones to escape public scrutiny.

  • Jones baselessly claimed the school shooting was a hoax and that the families involved were actors.

The families of the victims in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting have rejected a settlement offer from Alex Jones, who they accused of defaming them by claiming the killings never actually took place.

Jones offered each of the 13 people a $120,000 settlement, according to court documents.

Lawyers for the relatives subsequently filed to reject Jones' offers on Wednesday, with the filing calling them a transparent and desperate attempt by Alex Jones to escape a public spotlight under oath.

Jones claimed that the Sandy Hook shooting was staged to support opposition to the Second Amendment. Six teachers and 20 first graders were killed in a school shooting in Connecticut.

Jones admitted in a deposition that he had a form of psychosis that led him to believe that the shooting happened.

A Connecticut judge found Jones liable for damages when he refused to turn over evidence. The amount he must pay is not known.

Jones failed to show up for his deposition, claiming to be sick. Jones was still healthy enough to appear on his live show in the days prior, but Judge Barbara Bellis refused to excuse him.

Jones will face a trial later this year over defamation lawsuits in Texas filed by the families of the Sandy Hook victims, for which he has also been found liable for damages.

Lawyers for Jones did not reply immediately.
