Right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is facing resistance from his own company and a court-appointed bankruptcy trustee to his request for $680,000 in disputed, unpaid salary.

Free Speech Systems—the parent company of Infowars—and the trustee overseeing its Chapter 11 case asked a judge to reject Jones’ request for the payment. Jones is in the midst of his own, separate bankruptcy as well.

Free Speech and Jones previously negotiated a $1.3 million annual salary for the conservative firebrand, Free Speech said in a Monday filing in the US Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas. Jones and Free Speech filed for bankruptcy after they were ordered to pay nearly $1.4 billion in damages to families of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims.

After filing for Chapter 11, the company’s ability to pay Jones “an appropriate salary” was limited by court-approved budgets, Free Speech said. The budgets reduced Jones’ salary to $20,000 every two weeks since September 2022, down from $50,000 previously, according to court filings.
