It’s an excellent way to learn about defamation, defamation per se, false light and deceptive trade practices counts, and how damages are determined when you are in court with an oath-follower judge.

Learning the laws will help prevent being deceived by ruthless, two-faced, oath-breaker judges and lawyers.

Judges and lawyers who throw high-damage cases, while knowingly enabling the spread of fake news that fuels domestic terrorism, for whatever unjust gain and gratification.

The truth is the fake news, defamation, and conspiracy online crisis started years ago. It could have, at minimum, been mitigated if not prevented years ago.

Remember the Sandy Hook tragedy happened in 2012.

How many more fake news stories, and conspiracies were published and disseminated since then?

How many more people were defamed, harassed, and threatened, including judges, since then?

How many?

Indeed, the oath-breaker versus the oath-follower judges show you who they are by how they conduct proceedings, and in their rulings and orders.

officer of the court

Any person who has an obligation to promote justice and uphold the law, including judges, clerks, court personnel, police officers, and attorneys (who must be truthful in court and obey court rules).

Definition from Nolo’s Plain-English Law Dictionary

It’s tragic. The Sandy Hook families suffering was needlessly prolonged.

One thing Alex Jones was correct about — he was not the only person who peddled the Sandy Hook Hoax (see below).

Update: Watch Robbie Parker’s heartbreaking testimony on Day 11 of the Sandy Hook Hoax trial v Alex Jones.

Here you can see that Alex Jones and my defendant went on to peddle Pizzagate in addition to more fake news and defamation that fueled domestic terrorism from one of my court filings, in a defamation case, I originally filed in 2015.

Unlike Judge Barbara Bellis, who rules, faithfully applies the laws, and holds oath-breaker lawyers accountable, my judge, Judge Susan Paradise Baxter of the Western District of Pennsylvania does not.

In my case, which could have deterred the fake news, and defamation crisis, Judge Susan Paradise Baxter would not rule or recuse.

As an oath-breaker judge, she never faithfully applied defamation law either. But she did run up lots of unnecessary legal fees for fellow lawyers, and leave me in danger, while my defendants and likely Doe-defendants kept doing whatever they were doing.

What was that? More fake news, defamation, and conspiracies that culminated in the attack on the United States Capital —that’s what.

Please take the time to learn about defamation laws, free speech, and the damage done to people who have been defamed by watching this trial to prevent this from happening to more people.

Don’t act on fake news and end up in prison.

Sandy Hook Hoax defamation case: Nearly $1 Billion Damages

Update: “Alex Jones on the Hook for Nearly $1 Billion in Damages to Sandy Hook Plaintiffs,” LawandCrime, October 12, 2022.

Watch the verdict.

There’s no amount of money to compensate for all the pain the Sandy Hook families suffered because of defamation, fake news, lies, BS peddled by Alex Jones and others like him.

At least this is a start.

This is a wonderful day for the truth. It’s a wonderful day for people who want to live in peace and be left alone.

Nobody should be defamed, forced to take security precautions, (and that includes judges), and subjected to the cruelty and abuse inflicted by conspiracy peddlers for profit, defamation, fake news, or because of oath-breaking judges’ misconduct, for one day let alone for years.

Oath-breaker Judges v Oath-follower Judges

If you ever wondered why judges who should have recused did not recuse, broke more rules, and/or never faithfully applied the laws, in high-damage cases, wonder no more.

Even if you knocked off one or two digits, now you know why —unless anyone believes a judge with over 20 years of experience on the bench would violate their oath, abuse part(ies) seeking relief and redress, and throw a case for the fun of it.

Will people finally leave the Sandy Hook families and the FBI first responder alone to live in peace? I hope so.

Update: Laurel Brubaker Calkins, “Sandy Hook Families Ask Judge to Max Out Alex Jones Penalty: Judge to decide damages under state deceptive trade law,” Bloomberg, October 21, 2022.

Sandy Hook families said a Connecticut judge should impose “the highest possible punitive damages” for Alex Jones, suggesting by one calculation that could be as high as $2.75 trillion.

The families said that additional damages are warranted on top of a nearly $1 billion jury award because Jones broke a state law barring the sale of products using false statements. They reached the trillion-dollar sum by multiplying the state law’s up-to $5,000 per-violation fine by the 550 million social media exposures Jones’s audience received on his Facebook, YouTube and Twitter accounts in the three years following a school shooting that claimed the lives of 20 first graders and six educators in 2012 …

Unjust enrichment, fraudulent misrepresentation, civil conspiracy … anyone?

I think the Sandy Hook plaintiffs are right.

Time has demonstrated that Alex Jones and others like him won’t stop until they are held accountable and even then that’s still a maybe. Alex Jones, and others like him, have had years to stop spreading defamation, fake news, and misinformation while unjustly enriching themselves.

Instead, Alex Jones, and others like him, have demonstrated that they will not stop. It’s chilling. It does not seem to matter to them — despite people being seriously hurt, and that includes their followers, who acted on their fake news, and ended up in prison, they will not stop. Stop it!

Sandy Hook… Pizzagate … Jan 6 and all the fake news, defamation, misinformation, conspiracies, and BS that was peddled in between and continues to be peddled thereafter.

Updated to include Day 11 of the Sandy Hook Hoax v Alex Jones trial.
