Defamation lawsuits filed against conspiracy theorist Alex Jones by the parents of children killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre can now move forward following a ruling by the Texas Supreme Court. 

The high court on Friday rejected Jones’ request to dismiss the four legal actions, the Austin American-Statesman reported

The families sued Jones in Travis County, Texas, where his InfoWars media organization is based, after he pushed the bogus idea that the 2012 tragedy was a hoax, and that the grieving parents were crisis actors.

The mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school left 20 children and six adults dead.

Jones has since acknowledged the killings happened, but claims his speech is protected by the First Amendment.

A lawyer for the Sandy Hook families celebrated the rulings. 

“We are pleased Mr. Jones is learning that his frivolous efforts to delay this case will not spare him from the reckoning to come,” Mark Bankston told the Statesman.
