A Connecticut superior court awarded a landslide victory to the families of eight killed in a 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, suing the far-right broadcaster and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and his media Infowars for libel.

The judge in Connecticut ruled Monday that because Mr Jones refused to turn over court-ordered documents, including financial records, he was guilty by default. decision combines with three previous decisions in Texas to award four wins to the families of 10 victims of the Sandy Hook shooting in four libel lawsuits against Mr Jones.

For years Mr Jones has been spreading false theories that the shooting that killed 20 first graders and six educators was a government-led plot to confiscate guns from Americans and that the families of the victims were “Actors” in the ploy.

The Sandy Hook families claim Mr Jones profited from the spread of lies about the murders of their loved ones. Mr Jones has disputed this, despite having failed for years to produce enough records to substantiate his claims.

Juries in both states will then decide how much damages Mr Jones owes to the families, in addition to court costs. These trials are scheduled for next year in both states.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.
