Sandy Hook parents sue right-wing radio host Alex Jones for defamation

Two lawsuits filed on behalf of Neil Heslin, Leonard Pozner and Veronique De La Rosa allege that Jones and his media organisation spread false information related to the tragedy.

On December 14, 2012, Pozner and Lewis were among 26 people shot and killed by Adam Lanza, including 20 first graders, inside the Newtown school using an AR-15 before killing himself with a handgun.

InfoWars founder Jones has questioned what he calls the "official story" of Sandy Hook and suggested a political cover-up took place.

Pertaining to the lawsuits, Heslin was targeted by InfoWars after his interview with Megyn Kelly in which said he held his dead son "with a bullet hole through his head". Six educators were also killed, along with the gunman and his mother.

"They're recycling a green, green screen behind them", Jones said, according to the lawsuit.

"Even after these folks had to experience this trauma, for the next five years they were tormented by Alex Jones with vicious lies about them", Mark Bankston, a lawyer for the parents told HuffPost.

Jones has used his considerable reach to bring these notions and qualms to a wider audience, becoming a figurehead for fringe hypothoses that have mostly prospered on Internet forums. The families are seeking more than $1 million for defamation, relating to Jones' repeated claims on his widely popular radio show that the shooting was staged in order for left-wing politicians to push gun control laws.
