Alex Jones must pay $100,000 in Sandy Hook case - 2019-12-31
US radio host and prominent conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has been ordered to pay $100,000 (£76,000) in legal fees and court costs in a defamation case against him.
The case has been brought by the father of a child killed in the Sandy Hook mass school shooting in 2012.
Mr Jones has long claimed on his show and Infowars site that the attack was "completely fake" and a "giant hoax".
Twenty children - all under the age of 10 - and six adults were killed.
