Alex Jones’ InfoWars, IWHealth, & PrisonPlanetTV file for bankruptcy

The Facts

American radio host Alex Jones’ three businesses, InfoWars, IWHealth, and PrisonPlanetTV, have filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the US Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of TX.
Jones filed for bankruptcy after losing several defamation lawsuits over his claims that the 2012 Sandy Hook elementary school shooting was a hoax. Jones was found liable for damages.
Filing for Chapter 11 allows companies to continue operations and puts a hold on civil litigations as they reorganize their finances. InfoWars has claimed that it has estimated assets worth $50,000 or less and liabilities worth somewhere between $1 to $10 million.
In 2018, the families of Sandy Hook victims sued Jones for defamation, alleging that (following his comments) his followers subjected them to harassment and death threats. In 2019, Jones acknowledged that the shooting did take place in a sworn deposition.
Chris Mattei, an attorney representing the Sandy Hook families, stated, “Alex Jones is just delaying the inevitable: a public trial in which he will be held accountable for his profit-driven campaign of lies against the Sandy Hook families who have brought this lawsuit.”
