(Daily Caller) Alex Jones filed for Chapter 11 personal bankruptcy in a Houston court Friday, less than two months after he was hit with over $1 billion in compensatory damages.
A jury ordered the InfoWars founder to pay $1.44 billion to families who lost loved ones in the Sandy Hook mass shooting, which Jones falsely claimed was a hoax staged by crisis actors, Reuters reported. Jones has since acknowledged that the shooting was real.
