Why was Alex Jones ordered to pay punitive damages?

Alex Jones falsely called the shooting, which killed 20 children and six adults, a hoax orchestrated by the government to enact stricter gun laws. 

As a result, has been ordered to pay another $45million in punitive damages by a Texas jury on August 5, 2022, to the parents of a first-grader killed in the Sandy Hook massacre in 2012.

In total, he has been ordered to pay $49.3million, which is less than the $150million originally sought by the parents, Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis. 

The couple’s six-year-old son, Jesse Lewis, was one of the victims killed in the deadliest classroom shooting in US history. 

On August 4, 2022, Jones was also ordered to pay the family $4.1million in compensatory damages. 

Compensatory damages are intended to compensate the injured party for loss or injury, however, punitive damages are awarded to punish a wrongdoer. 

What did the family say about the court's decision

Attorney Mark Bankston, who represented Heslin and Lewis, released a statement after the verdict was announced on August 4, 2022, saying: "Today we secured $4.1million on behalf of Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis. Having already secured $1.5million in fines from Mr. Jones, the plaintiffs are now due $5.6million that Alex Jones will have to pay them.

"This does not include punitive damages to be decided tomorrow [August 5, 2022] and additional sanctions pending before the court.

"Neil and Scarlett are thrilled with the result and look forward to putting Mr. Jones' money to good use.'

He concluded: "Mr. Jones on the other hand will not sleep easy tonight."
