Possible release of medical records in Junes defamation trial probed

The possible release of private medical records of several Sandy Hook family members is the subject of a new line of questioning in the ongoing trial in Connecticut against conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.  Judge Barbara Bellis ordered his attorney, Norm Pattis, to explain how the records ended up being sent to Jones’ attorney in Texas.  The judge also wants to know what steps he and other attorneys took to protect the confidentiality of the records of several of the plaintiffs suing Jones for defamation over his claims that 12-14 was a hoax.  The revelation came up when an attorney in the Texas case said Jones' attorney mistakenly sent him a cache of documents.  An attorney for Pattis requested that future hearings be held privately to protect Pattis from potential damage to his “reputation and character,” but Judge Bellis denied that request.  The chief disciplinary counsel for the Connecticut Judiciary will schedule a date for an in-person hearing. Bellis noted that it is not the first time attorneys for Jones have been accused of misconduct, calling the number of disciplinary cases to stem from the lawsuit “unprecedented.”
