According to the media reports, the lawyer representing the two parents of Sandy Hook in the dishonesty of Alex Jones, a right-wing conspiracy theorist, said on August 4 that several state and federal investigators, including the January 6th Panel probing the 6th JAN deadly Capitol riot, have demanded him to produce test messages mistakenly delivered to him by the law firm of the right-wing talk show host.
The complainant’s lawyer, Mark Bankston, told Judge Maya Guerra Gamble, who is the first Judge to be elected 459Th District Court serving Travis County, that he’s under request from several US federal agencies and security agencies to provide the documents. But, Bankston added: absent a ruling from you couldn’t do that, he aimed to do so instantly following this trial.
Furthermore, referring to Alex Jones’ lawyer, F. Andino Reynal, Bankston said he believes that there’s unquestionably nothing, that Mr. Jones’ attorney has performed to achieve the task of defending his client and prevent Bankston from doing that.
Later the plaintiffs’ attorney added that the US House Select Panel had requested him to produce the records. However, Mr. Bankston refused to specify to the media which other investigators outside the January 6th Panel took an interest in gaining phone records of Alex Jones.
Asserted Fifth Amendment Right
On August 3, Mark Bankston revealed in Court that Andino Reynal’s company sent him two years’ worth of records from Alex Jones’ phone that contained every text the right-wing talk show host had delivered. Jones was a chief character in the 6th January attack. He was at the demonstration before the insurrection though he didn’t attack the United States Capitol Hill.
Alex Jones’ lawyers were just now arguing for a mistrial because they accidentally sent the Sandy Hook family lawyers the entire contents of Jones’ phone.
Judge denies the motion.

The founder of Infowars, an American far-right conspiracy theory, Alex Jones, testified in front of the House inquiry panel by video earlier in 2022, but he frequently claimed his ‘Amendment V’ (to the U.S. Constitution) right remain silent during the meeting.
Moreover, the Judge adjudicating the case advised Mr. Reynal to take some time while they waited for a judgment to research a lawful argument to prevent the plaintiff’s lawyer from revealing records to the Jan. 6th Select Panel and others.
According to the media, the dishonesty of Mr. Jones was pointed up in a Texas court on August 3 as an attorney for two Sandy Hook parents cross-examined the founder of Infowars and analyzed his answers.
