Jury selection underway in Connecticut defamation trial against Alex Jones over Sandy Hook
Jury selection is underway in the Connecticut defamation trial against Infowars host Alex Jones over the Sandy Hook shooting.
News 12's sources in the courtroom say that jury selection resumed today in Waterbury Federal Court.
The case was filed by relatives of the victims of the Sandy Hook shooting who are seeking damages against Jones for claiming the school massacre was a hoax.
The trial is expected to start next month.
The Connecticut trial is separate from a trial in Texas that ended earlier this month with a jury awarding more than $49 million to the parents of one of the slain children.
There's also a second lawsuit against Jones in Texas by Sandy Hook families over the hoax claims.
