A former FBI agent and families of eight victims killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook elementary school shooting are set to receive an additional half a billion dollars in damages from InfoWars host Alex Jones, a Connecticut judge ruled Thursday.

Jones was ordered by a Connecticut jury last month to pay 15 plaintiffs $965 million for lies he told about the shooting, including that the massacre was a government-engineered “false flag” to take guns away from American citizens.

On Thursday, a Waterbury judge ordered him to pay another $473 million in punitive damages.

“Our hope is that this serves to reinforce the message of this case: those who profit from lies targeting the innocent will face justice,” plaintiffs’ attorney Chris Mattei said.

Judge Barbara Bellis awarded two punitive damages in this case: one to cover attorney fees and non-taxable costs for plaintiffs and another for a violation of the plaintiffs’ civil rights under the Connecticut Unfair Trade Practices Act.
