Judge rules Sandy Hook families can depose Alex Jones in defamation case


A Connecticut judge ruled Wednesday that Infowars owner Alex Jones must sit for a deposition by attorneys for the parents of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims who are suing him for defamation.

Six families and one FBI agent who responded to the shooting filed a lawsuit last year accusing Jones of defamation for calling the 2012 shooting a hoax.

Jones has claimed repeatedly that the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut never took place.
