Infowars to Shut Down and Sell Off Assets Amid Bankruptcy Proceedings


A bankruptcy court trustee announced Sunday that Alex Jones’s online outlet Infowars will be shut down and sold off, citing plans to wind-up its operations and liquidate its assets. Trustee Christopher Murray filed an “emergency” motion in a Houston court, seeking to halt efforts by the families of Sandy Hook victims to collect their due debts from Jones, who is liable for $1.5 billion in judgments.

Murray claimed that such efforts could disrupt the liquidation process and potential sale of Infowars’s parent company, Free Speech Systems, which could lead to a “chaotic” and “value-destructive money grab.” He sought the court’s intervention to prevent the ” Pell-mell seizure of FSS’s assets, including its cash,” which could undermine the personal bankruptcy case.

The move comes after U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Maya Guerra Gamble approved a motion from one of the Sandy Hook families to force the transfer of certain assets away from FSS. Christopher Mattei, a lawyer representing the Sandy Hook families, expressed support for the trustee’s motion, stating that they were “disappointed” with the opposing motion and feared it would “undercut” a fair distribution of assets to all the families.

“We are precisely in the unfortunate situation that the Connecticut families hoped to avoid,” Mattei said.
