The families of the Sandy Hook victims have offered Infowars host, Alex Jones a deal to pay them 6 percent of what he owes in exchange for dropping their claim against him for stating that the December 14, 2012 Newtown, Connecticut tragedy that claimed 26 lives a hoax. The families forced Alex Jones into personal bankruptsy after they won $1.48 billion in defamation damages. According to News Times “Jones may elect to receive a complete discharge for himself and (his parent company also in bankruptcy) if he agrees to pay, from any source, at least $8.5 million per year, plus 50 percent of any income over $9 million per year, for 10 years,” reads a settlement offer by the families’ attorneys, filed two days before Thanksgiving in Texas bankruptsy court.''

“The time has come for Jones to choose whether he is willing to pay his creditors a reasonable portion of what they are owed or would prefer to remain embroiled in costly and time-consuming litigation for years to come.” Jones’ bankruptcy attorneys had not responded to the families’ settlement offer on Monday, except to tell the judge in a pre-Thanksgiving filing that Jones was working on his own plan to get out of bankruptcy that would be presented in December. “[T]he undersigned (attorneys are) unwilling to ruin the Thanksgiving holiday for many professionals who have already been working long hours on other matters on this case and others simply to ‘beat them to the punch,’” Jones’ attorneys wrote to the judge. Jones’ attorneys wrote in the same breath, however, that “Jones believes the time has come to move toward filing a plan, and confirmation thereof.” The Sandy Hook families’ lawyers agreed, although not on the same grounds.''
