Judge: Alex Jones' lawyer broke ethics rules in Newtown case

WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut judge on Wednesday determined a lawyer for Infowars host Alex Jones broke attorney conduct rules during the deposition of a witness, as part of a defamation lawsuit against Jones for calling the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting a hoax.

Judge Barbara Bellis in Waterbury said during a court hearing that she was “leaning toward” reprimanding Hartford lawyer Jay Wolman, but did not immediately impose sanctions. She said she would issue a written ruling later. Wolman denied he broke ethics rules.

Relatives of some of the 20 children and six educators killed in the 2012 school shooting are suing Jones and his companies, including Austin, Texas-based Infowars, saying they've been subjected to harassment and death threats from Jones' followers because of the hoax conspiracy pushed on his show. Bellis found Jones liable for damages to the families last month, and a trial on how much the damages should be is scheduled for next August.

At issue on Wednesday was Wolman's questioning of Jones' former employee Robert Jacobson during a deposition in September and whether he badgered and intimidated Jacobson in a failed attempt to get Jacobson to search email on his phone for the phrase “Sandy Hook.”

1. I don't know this guy. I do know Jones' other lawyer Norm Pattis.

He's very good. Sandra Sotomayor told him to try to get appointed to the federal bench. Really.
