Infowars’ Alex Jones ordered to undergo sworn deposition in case involving Sandy Hook parents
Discussions on Jones’ web show have called the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre a hoax, and lawsuits by families of eight victims and a first responder say they’ve been subjected to harassment and death threats from Jones’ followers.

The superior court judge also ruled Wednesday that the families can depose several other defendants in the case, including those critical to Infowars’ business operations.
Jones has defended the discussions on his show. He has cited First Amendment rights and says he believes the shooting happened.
