The dishonesty of right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones was spotlighted in a Texas court on Wednesday.
The jury hearing the case will determine how much Jones will have to pay the parents, Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis.
Jones, who was the sole witness for the defense during the trial, did not fare well Wednesday as he was cross-examined by the plaintiffs' attorney.
Bankston disclosed to Jones and the court that he had recently acquired evidence proving Jones had lied when he claimed during the discovery process that he had never texted.
Bankston said that Jones' attorney had, in an apparent mishap, sent him two years of cell phone records that included every text message Jones had sent.
The cell phone records, Bankston said, showed that Jones had in fact texted about the Sandy Hook shooting.
Bankston showed Jones a text message exchange he had about Sandy Hook. But Jones testified that he had "never seen these text messages."
In another notable moment during cross-examination Wednesday, Jones was asked whether he had connected Maya Guerra Gamble, the judge overseeing the trial, to pedophilia and human trafficking.
