image for Alex Jones skips Sandy Hook deposition again after judge rules 2nd doctor’s note doesn’t excuse him

For the second day in a row, Alex Jones failed to comply with a court order requiring his deposition in a successful defamation lawsuit brought by families of Sandy Hook shooting victims.

About an hour after it was scheduled to begin, law firms representing the families alerted the media that Jones did not arrive for the in-person questioning.

“We will continue to work within the legal system to hold Mr. Jones accountable for his actions.”.

The no-show marks the second time in two days Jones has failed to appear for his deposition, with his defense attorneys arguing to the court that an unnamed “medical condition” should excuse him.

Late Wednesday evening, attorneys for Jones produced an additional doctor’s note stemming from the second opinion.

In her note submitted to the court, Offutt described her, “medical visit with Mr. Jones for acute medical issues that were time-sensitive and potentially serious.”.

Despite the added medical testimony from Offutt, Judge Barbara Bellis again denied the motion from the defense, ordering Jones to appear for his deposition Thursday morning. »
