Alex Jones has postponed his trial after a Texas judge declared Infowars bankrupt

AUSTIN (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – A judge in Texas has postponed a trial to determine how much Alex Jones has to pay to Sandy Hook’s families because Infowars wants to avoid bankruptcy.

A defamation award trial was set to begin Monday to determine how much money Jones’s murdered Sandy Hook will pay to his parents after the 2012 massacre of 26 first-graders and a teacher was allegedly staged fraud.

During a hearing in Austin on Wednesday, Travis District Court Judge Maya Guerra Gamble said: “I will resume this trial as soon as I am arrested (from the bankruptcy court). We will go to court as soon as possible. To be able to.”

The delay comes just days after two other companies affiliated with Infowars and Jones filed for bankruptcy protection in Chapter 11 in Texas.

Jones lost defamation lawsuits in Texas and Connecticut for his comments about the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre.

No new trial date has been set.

Lawyers for the Sandy Hook family have accused Jones of trying to hide millions of dollars in assets. Among the creditors listed in Infowars’ bankruptcy petition are relatives of some of the 20 children and six educators killed in a 2012 school massacre in Connecticut.

It is the headquarters of Austin Jones’ Infowars broadcasting and marketing platform.
