We Are So, So Sad That Bankruptcy Judge To Sell Off InfoWars

O, happy day! The court-appointed trustee overseeing the liquidation of Alex Jones’ estate plans to shut down Infowars and sell off its assets, according to a new filing on Monday. Via HuffPost:

The trustee, Christopher Murray, filed an emergency motion with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court after the parents of a child killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook school massacre asked another court in Texas to turn over the assets of Infowars’ parent company, Free Speech Systems. The parents, Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis, won a $50 million verdict against Jones in 2022 over his lies that the mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, which killed 20 children and six adults, was a hoax.

That verdict is separate from the $1.5 billion Jones owes to other family members of victims after a lawsuit in Connecticut.

A Texas judge approved the handover on Friday, but the trustee asked a federal court to step in and stop it, as it would interfere with his plans to “conduct an orderly wind-down” of Free Speech Systems and his plans to “liquidate its inventory.”

It’s the first time the trustee has said publicly he plans to shutter Infowars.

Join the celebration! Everybody, DANCE!
