Alex Jones must pay $4.1 million in compensatory damages to the parents of Sandy Hook victims. How about punitive damages?

Alex Jones' trial for defaming the victims and families of the Sandy Hook shooting is currently captivating the nation, and the first major court decision to come out of it will do some significant damage to his net worth. Per Vox, Alex must pay $4.1 million in compensatory damages to Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis, the parents of 6-year-old Jesse Lewis, who was murdered during the shooting. The decision was handed down after the trial on Aug. 4, 2022.

This figure is far less than the reported original sum of $150 million. However, Alex is returning to court on Aug. 5, 2022, to determine what, if any, punitive damages he will have to pay on top of the $4.1 million already stipulated by the judge.
