HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – Infowars host Alex Jones has failed to show up for a deposition in a lawsuit filed by relatives of victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

Jones missed the deposition in Austin, Texas, on Wednesday, with his lawyers citing an appointment for undisclosed medical conditions.

Families of some of the school shooting victims are suing Jones for calling the massacre a hoax.

A Connecticut judge on Wednesday ordered Jones to appear at the deposition Thursday, but denied a request by the families’ lawyer to have Jones arrested if he fails to show up again.

Jones’ lawyer says his doctors advised Jones not to attend court proceedings.
