"What Hell's Like" - Jury Orders Alex Jones To Pay Sandy Hook Families, FBI Agent $1 B

• Zero Hedge

Late this afternoon, the jury in Alex Jones' second defamation trial awarded the families of eight victims in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, and one FBI agent, $965 million.

"Today, a jury representing our community rendered a historic verdict, a verdict against Alex Jones' lies and their poisonous spread, and a verdict for truth and our common humanity," Chris Mattei, the families' lead attorney said outside the courthouse.

The plaintiffs sought a sum of $550 million to match the total views his claims received, per CNN Business.

Ultimately, the jury awarded the plaintiffs nearly double the already enormous sum.
