Feb 13 (Reuters) – The parents of a six-year old child killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook elementary school massacre asked a U.S. bankruptcy judge on Tuesday to allow them proceed to trial against right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who claimed for years that the shooting was a hoax.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Christopher Lopez said at a hearing in Houston on Tuesday that he will consider their request at a March 24 court hearing.

It would be the third defamation trial against Jones and his company Free Speech Systems, after two previous ones found Jones and FSS liable for a combined $1.5 billion in damages.

Because Jones and his company are bankrupt, lawsuits against them cannot proceed without the permission of a bankruptcy judge.

Leonard Pozner and Veronique De La Rosa, whose son Noah was killed in the Newtown, Connecticut shooting sued Jones and the company for spreading lies about the shooting. A Texas court previously found them liable and the proposed trial would determine how much Jones owes the parents.

  1. Alex Jones has hurt many people and degraded public discourse through misinformation. It seems two trials were not enough for this bankrupt loud mouth.
