Alex Jones found liable in lawsuit brought by parents of Sandy Hook shooting victims

Controversial radio and TV personality Alex Jones was found liable Monday for damages in a lawsuit brought by the parents of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims. Judge Barbara Bellis found Jones liable for damages by default because Jones and his companies, like Infowars, showed "callous disregard" for the rules of discovery. The ruling sends the case to a jury to award the families damages without a civil trial.
