Judge refuses to pause $25,000 daily fines for Alex Jones

Alex Jones's lawyers requested the Judge pause his fines that were implemented as of April 1, 2022 even though Jones has agreed to be deposed on April 11th.
~snip~
Because a new deposition date of April 11 has — according to the court record — been promised by Jones, his attorneys moved to stay the fines. The defense cited the fear of having to pay $525,000 in sum total under an order which would, in their words, “force Mr. Jones to produce, on a daily basis, liquid financial assets in excess of $100,000 per day if they so choose – a difficult task for anyone.” That amount — more than half a million dollars — would include six days of sanctions under the judge’s escalating order.

The judges order as filed:
~snip~
Contempt sanctions must remain in effect until Mr. Jones is deposed. Counsel for Mr. Jones now informs the Court that Mr. Jones is willing to start his deposition on April 11. Perhaps Mr. Jones will appear for his deposition on April 11. But Mr. Jones also agreed to be deposed on March 23 and March 24. As his actions have shown, a representation from Mr. Jones does not amount to real-life attendance at a deposition. The escalating fines were imposed to compel his appearance and should not be set aside merely because Mr. Jones has yet again said he will appear. Mr. Jones cannot avoid contempt penalties with more court filings: “y its very nature the court’s contempt power, ‘to be effectual, must be immediate and peremptory, and not subject to suspension at the mere will of the offender.’ . . . .” No stay is appropriate or warranted, and the Motion for Stay should be denied.

1. Jones is a grifter, he has money squirreled away to hide it from the courts.

5. Exquisite legalese for "Alex Jones is a lying motherfucker ...

and I don't believe a single word that emanates from the oozing orifice that he calls a mouth".
