Judge to rule on June 14 in Alex Jones bankruptcy case, could liquidate Infowars

Judge Christopher Lopez said he will rule on the families' motion on June 14.


Over the weekend, families of the victims of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting filed a motion to a bankruptcy judge to liquidate Alex Jones’ media company, Infowars. The judge is expected to rule on the case on June 14. 

Jones’ media company Infowars, which operates under Free Speech Systems LLC, filed for bankruptcy protection in 2022 after they were ordered to pay almost $1.5 billion to the family members of victims of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting who sued Jones for defamation after he had claimed the massacre that left 26 people dead was a hoax. Jones later recanted the claim and apologized for the actions.   

According to court documents, on Sunday, the victims’ families filed an emergency motion in the Southern District of Texas to ask the court to change the bankruptcy reorganization into a liquidation. The motion comes after Jones held a broadcast on Saturday, saying that authorities were planning on shutting down his media organization, Infowars. The Associated Press reported that Bankruptcy Judge Christopher Lopez said he will rule on the families' motion on June 14 and that Free Speech Systems will be allowed to operate until at least that date.  

During the Saturday livestream, Jones claimed that authorities were planning on shutting it down and told his fans to “surround the building and just make a big issue of this and expose this.”

Jones said through tears during the broadcast, “At the end of the day, we’re going to beat these people. I’m not trying to be dramatic here, but it’s been a hard fight."
