WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) — Infowars host Alex Jones is trying to get his free speech defense and other claims before a jury to argue that he is not liable for damages for calling the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting a hoax years ago. The effort comes despite a Connecticut judge ruling this month that Jones was liable by default in a defamation lawsuit brought by relatives of some of the victims. A hearing on how much the damages should be is planned next August before a jury. Jones filed court documents last Wednesday saying he should be allowed to present his defenses against any liability. The families are opposing the request.
