Sandy Hook families file request to seize Alex Jones' X account as part of asset liquidation

"The Connecticut Plaintiffs never wanted money from Jones but to silence him."

Katie Daviscourt Seattle WA
On Wednesday, families of the Sandy Hook massacre victims petitioned the bankruptcy court to seize Alex Jones's X account as part of liquidating his assets. The families argued that Jones's X account, which boasts more than 2.3 million followers, should be treated "no different than a customer list of any other liquidating business," claiming that Jones uses the account to reach customers and gain profit.

This comes after Jones, who filed for bankruptcy protection in 2022, agreed to liquidate his assets in bankruptcy after failing to reach a settlement with the Sandy Hook families that would reduce the $1.5 billion he owes to the relatives of 20 students and six staff members killed in the 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

Now, the families want the Houston, Texas judge to seize control of Jones's social media accounts to ensure he is unable to start any new business ventures, claiming that Jones's posts are a key part of the Infowars business being liquidated to pay his debts, per Reuters.

They contended that Jones has utilized the social media account to reduce the value of Infowars by redirecting sales from the site to his father's health supplement company, In response to the request, Jones' attorney, Vickie Driver said: "The Connecticut Plaintiffs never wanted money from Jones but to silence him."

Jones' X account was reinstated in December following a user poll conducted by X owner Elon Musk after a nearly five-year ban from the platform.

The families' demand is scheduled to be heard by a US bankruptcy judge at a court hearing in Houston on Friday. The judge is anticipated to convert Alex Jones' bankruptcy case from a Chapter 11 bankruptcy, which provides an insolvent debtor with greater control, to a Chapter 7 liquidation. This conversion would enable a court-appointed trustee to seize and liquidate Jones' assets.
