Judge Barbara Bellis's ruling also allows for the deposition of three other defendants, individuals who are "critical to Infowars' commercial operations," according to a press release from Sandy Hook families.
The decision comes on the heels of Bellis's ruling that Jones must deliver financial, commercial, and internal marketing documents related to InfoWars operations.
The legal complaint in the case says that Jones does not believe that the shooting was a hoax, but has nevertheless repeatedly accused the Sandy Hook families of falsifying the deaths of their family members. There are also six companies named in the case, including various entities related to the Jones InfoWars website.
CNN contacted Jones for comment and no longer answered.
"The defendants of Jones invent elaborate and false conspiracy theories about paranoia because they move the product and make money ", says the suit. "Not because they really believe what they are saying, but rather because they increase profits."
"Jones is the main amplifier of a group that has worked in concert to create and spread repugnant and false narratives about the filming of Sandy Hook and his victims, and to promote their harassment and abuse," says the cause. .
Jones denied the allegations. The other parties appointed in the case have not previously responded to CNN's requests for comment.
Mark Barden, whose son, Daniel, was one of the 20 first-grade children shot dead at Sandy Hook Elementary School, reacted to the sentence.
"For years, Alex Jones and his co-conspirators have transformed the unimaginable loss of our sweet little Daniel and many others into advertising and fundraising. And it's well beyond the time it takes be held accountable for the pain false narratives have caused so many and today's sentence brings us closer to this. "
The lawyer Josh Koskoff, who is one of the lawyers representing the families, has released this declaration.
"It is not surprising that Alex Jones would do anything in his power to avoid testifying under oath and being forced to deal with his outrageous conduct From the beginning, we said that Jones has knowingly spammed false narratives and malign to make money for the expens and the pain, security and safety of Sandy Hook families. Today's sentence brings us closer to the test. "
