Alex Jones’ attorneys filed an emergency motion seeking to destroy text messages mistakenly sent to the lawyers of Sandy Hook families.
Andino Reynal said the texts had been sent in error as a jury resumed its deliberations in the Infowars founders’ defamation trial on Thursday morning.
“We have a situation here which is akin to me mistakenly giving him the key to a room, and he opens the door to the room and instead of finding what he expected find other doors,” Mr Reynal said.
He said the texts contained private medical records and communications covered by attorney-client privilege.
On Thursday, Sandy Hook family attorney Mark Bankston revealed he had been in advertently sent thousands of Jones’ text messages going back three years.
Mr Bankston confronted Jones with the text messages as he accused him of lying about not having communicated about the Sandy Hook tragedy during the discovery phase of the trial.
Within minutes of the texts messages being revealed, the House committee investigating the attack on the US Capitol began preparing to subpoena the messages, a source told Rolling Stone.
Mr Bankston said he intended to cooperate with law-enforcement and US government officials who wanted to view the messages.
