WATERBURY, CT (WFSB) - While the defamation trial for conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has continued this week, he won’t be in court until next week.

The trial is meant to decide how much Jones and the parent company for his media show Infowars should pay the families of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting for defaming them by calling the incident a hoax.

Proceedings at Waterbury Superior Court resumed at 10 a.m. on Tuesday.

Jones’s attorney, Norm Pattis, said that Jones is expected to return to the stand next week on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The jury will get the case soon after that.

Last week’s proceedings included contentious testimony.

Jones called the judge a tyrant and said that he was done apologizing for claiming the 2012 shooting was staged.
