Lawyer: Sandy Hook damage sends message to media
STORY: The verdict follows a two-week trial in Austin, Texas, where Jones’ Infowars radio show and webcast is based. The amount was well below the millions of dollars in compensatory damages that had been sought. Mark Bankston, a lawyer representing the parents, said his clients were doing well and the verdict could represent “light at the end of the tunnel” for them. Federico Andino Reynal, an attorney for Jones, issued a brief statement to the gathered media outside the courthouse after the verdict, saying his team was “very satisfied” with the verdict and called it “a vindication of the American legal system”. .
