A U.S. bankruptcy court trustee is set to pull the plug on the Infowars media platform.

They want to sell off its assets to help cover the $1.5 billion Alex Jones owes.

His crime?

He said the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting a hoax.

Silly Alex Jones, he thinks we have free speech to question the news and the narrative.

In an “emergency” motion filed Sunday in Houston, a plan was announced to  “conduct an orderly wind-down” of Infowars’ parent company.

What’s the emergency though?

They also didn’t specify when this liquidation would occur.

What does the future hold in store for Alex Jones and InfoWars?

Washington Examiner reports:

Alex Jones’s outlet Infowars will be shut down and sold off, a bankruptcy court trustee said.

In an “emergency” motion filed Sunday in a Houston court, trustee Christopher Murray said he has been “planning to wind-up [Free Speech Systems’s] operations and liquidate its inventory.” He did not give a timeline for the liquidation.

According to the Associated Press, Murray asked U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Christopher Lopez to halt efforts by families of the victims of the Sandy Hook mass shooting to collect the amount owed to them by Jones, arguing that such efforts would derail efforts to close Infowars’s parent company, Free Speech Systems. Much of the proceeds through this closure and sell-off would go to the families.

Jones owes $1.5 billion in lawsuit judgments for consistently calling the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting a hoax.

Associated Press adds:

A U.S. bankruptcy court trustee is planning to shut down Infowars media platform and liquidate its assets to help pay the $1.5 billion in lawsuit judgments Jones owes for repeatedly calling the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting a hoax.

In an “emergency” motion filed Sunday in Houston, trustee Christopher Murray indicated publicly for the first time that he intends to “conduct an orderly wind-down” of the operations of Infowars’ parent company and “liquidate its inventory.” Murray, who was appointed by a federal judge to oversee the assets in Jones’ personal bankruptcy case, did not give a timetable for the liquidation.

Jones has been saying on his web and radio shows that he expects Infowars to operate for a few more months before it is shut down because of the bankruptcy. But he has vowed to continue his bombastic broadcasts in some other fashion, possibly on social media. He also had talked about someone else buying the company and allowing him to continue his shows as an employee.

Murray also asked U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Christopher Lopez to put an immediate hold on the Sandy Hook families’ efforts to collect the massive amount Jones owes them. Murray said those efforts would interfere with his plans to close the parent company, Free Speech Systems in Austin, Texas, and sell off its assets — with much of the proceeds going to the families.

On Friday, lawyers for the parents of one of the 20 children killed in the shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, asked a state judge in Texas to order Free Speech Systems, or FSS, to turn over to the families certain assets, including money in bank accounts, and garnish its accounts. Judge Maya Guerra Gamble approved the request, court records show, prompting Murray’s emergency motion.

The parents, Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis, whose 6-year-old son, Jesse Lewis, was killed in the shooting, won a $50 million verdict in Texas over Jones’ lies about the shooting being a hoax staged by crisis actors with the goal of increasing gun control. In a separate Connecticut lawsuit, Jones was ordered to pay other Sandy Hook families more than $1.4 billion for defamation and emotional distress.

It should be noted that a prophet recently stated that Alex Jones would get it all back.
