Texas Judge Scott Jenkins is expected to rule this month on a motion filed by InfoWars host Alex Jones to have one of the pending suits related to his media coverage of the Sandy Hook shooting in 2012 against him dismissed on the grounds of "intentional infliction of emotional distress," according to the Austin American-Statesman.

Lawsuit by Sandy Hook families against gun manufacturer will go to trial in 2021

  Lawsuit by Sandy Hook families against gun manufacturer will go to trial in 2021 A lawsuit by nine families of victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings against the company that made the gun used in the massacre will go to trial in September of 2021. On Wednesday lawyers for Remington Arms and the families agreed to the date after nearly two hours of haggling before Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis. Remington pushed for a court date in 2022 but Attorney Josh Koskoff, who is representing the families, wanted September of 2021.

One definition of intentional infliction of emotional distress might look something like this: "Liability for IIED can arise when one person's extreme and outrageous conduct intentionally or recklessly causes severe emotional distress to another."

"He's claiming that he held his son and saw the bullet hole in his head," Shroyer said on InfoWars. "That is not possible."

Newsweek reached out to Jones' counsel, Austin attorney T. Wade Jefferies, for comment on the case but did not receive a statement in time for publication.

Jones garnered media attention for his comments concerning the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut in 2012 in which 26 people were killed. Jones told his audience that the shooting event was a false flag and that "no one died."

"Sandy Hook is a synthetic completely fake with actors, in my view, manufactured," Jones said in January 2015. "And it just shows how bold they are that they clearly used actors."

Since then, Jones has said that he was suffering "a form of psychosis" that made him believe certain events were staged, such as the Sandy Hook shooting.

Sandy Hook Families Get Gunmaker Trial 9 Years After Attack

  Sandy Hook Families Get Gunmaker Trial 9 Years After Attack Family members of nine children and educators killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre have received a September 2021 trial date in their landmark lawsuit against Remington Arms Co. over its marketing of the semiautomatic military-style rifle the shooter used.

"So long before these lawsuits I said that in the past I thought everything was a conspiracy and I would kind of get into that mass group think of the communities that were out saying that," Jones said in an April deposition. "And so now I see that it's more in the middle."

In a deposition recorded this past November, Jones was asked by attorney Mark Bankston, representative of the plaintiffs in multiple lawsuits connected with Sandy Hook, if he believed children actually died during the shooting.

"I believe that the children died there," Jones said, "and I believe that a lot of the anomalies that were brought up have been disproven and I believed that before I ever got sued."

Bankston has also asked the court to levy a judgment against Jones and InfoWars, citing their inability to give the pending cases a sense of gravitas.

"Defendants have been given ample opportunity to take these lawsuits seriously and obey the rule of law," wrote Bankston. "Yet despite a rotating cast of counsel, Defendants have remained stubborn in their refusal to respect the integrity of the proceedings. Now it has become apparent that Defendants' cavalier indifference to this Court's authority has compromised every form of evidence in this case."

"I do not agree with the blanket statement that my clients have engaged in 'repeated flagrant discovery abuse, intentional spoliation of critical evidence, and bad faith dilatory tactics,'" Jefferies told the Statesman. "My response to plaintiff's motion will address those allegations."
