A Texas judge has ordered Alex Jones and InfoWars to pay more than $100,000 in court costs and legal fees in the case filed against him by the family of a victim of the Sandy Hook shooting.

The father of a six-year-old killed in the 2012 shooting in Newton, Connecticut, is suing Jones and InfoWars for their promotion of conspiracy theories about the event.

Travis County Judge Scott Jenkins ordered Jones and InfoWars to pay $65,825 for ignoring a court order to provide documents and witnesses. Jenkins also denied a motion to dismiss the case and ordered Jones and InfoWars to pay an additional $34,323.80, bringing the total to $100,148.80.

Added to other fees levied against him in October, Jones and InfoWars have been ordered to pay $126,023.80 before the trial for the case has started.
