Amy Wilburn, a skilled bankruptcy attorney of award-winning bankruptcy and immigration firm Lincoln-Goldfinch Law, answers questions about the Alex Jones bankruptcy in an interview with KOGO radio. Amy discusses Jones request to keep his $1.3 million annual salary from the parent company of his InfoWars website in the San Diego radio interview on December 26, 2022.
Alex Jones, a radio show host and conspiracy theorist, filed for bankruptcy after receiving an order from a Connecticut judge to pay $1.5 billion to the relatives of the Sandy Hook mass shooting who filed cases against him for spreading misinformation and lies about the incident.
The host and conspiracy theorist claimed that the mass shooting was a hoax and that it was an incident staged by the government. Jones said that the people involved are only actors and no one actually died in the killing that occurred in Newton, Connecticut back in 2012.
Alex Jones lost the case and was found liable by default. He was ordered to pay billions as damages to the families of the victims.
KOGO radio host LaDona Harvey discussed with Amy different aspects of the case including Alex Jones’s request to keep his salary from Free Speech Systems LLC, the parent company of his InfoWars website. The company, founded by Alex Jones, also filed for bankruptcy in July 2022.
Amy admitted that she would be surprised if the judge allows Jones to keep the $1.3 million salary. It is based on a new contract that was signed only a few months before the company filed for bankruptcy.
Harvey also asked Amy if judgment debtors can avoid paying damages by filing for bankruptcy. The San Diego radio host made the observation in relation to Alex Jones filing for bankruptcy after losing his case and being asked to pay billions for damages.
The seasoned bankruptcy attorney remarked that Jones can’t circumvent payment of damages by filing for bankruptcy. The court will only direct him to submit a repayment plan that his creditors must agree with.
