US supreme court denies Alex Jones’s appeal in Sandy Hook shooting case

The US supreme court on Monday declined to hear an appeal by the Infowars host, Trump ally and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who was fighting a Connecticut court sanction in a defamation lawsuit brought by relatives of some victims of the Sandy Hook school shooting. Jones was penalized in 2019 by a trial court judge for an angry outburst against an attorney for the relatives and for violating numerous orders to turn over documents to lawyers.
