On Sunday, the far-right website Infowars owned by Alex Jones filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas.

The Hill reports:

Jones is the target of a number of defamation lawsuits connected to comments he made regarding the 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, in which 20 first graders and six educators were killed.

Jones suggested on Infowars that the shooting was a “hoax” staged by crisis actors in an effort to increase opposition to the Second Amendment.

The far-right host was found liable for damages in three defamation cases brought by families of the victims of the incident.

Infowars’ assets are estimated to be between $0 and $50,000 and its liabilities are estimated to range from $1 million and $10 million, according to bankruptcy filings cited by Reuters.

Two other companies owned by Jones, Infowars Health and Prison Planet TV, also filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

  1. Jones suggested!! Freedom of speech, I don’t see how he could be “Liable”
    for anything, he spoke his mind. It’s all BS!
