Sandy Hook Victim’s Father Wins Defamation Lawsuit
While I have certainly had my own questions surrounding what took place at Sandy Hook and whether or not we were given the entire story, along with seeing strange anomalies in the story, some have written entire books and made statements that no one died at Sandy Hook. One of those people was Dr. Jim Fetzer, who produced the 425-page book Nobody Died at Sandy Hook. In a recent victory by a father of one of the victims, a judge issued a summary judgment against authors James Fetzer and Mike Palacek.
USA Today reports:
The father of a victim of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre has won a defamation lawsuit against the authors of a book that claimed the shooting never happened – the latest victory for victims’ relatives who have been taking a more aggressive stance against conspiracy theorists.
The book, “Nobody Died at Sandy Hook,” has also been pulled to settle claims against its publisher filed by Lenny Pozner, whose 6-year-old son Noah was killed in the shooting.
“My face-to-face interactions with Mr. Pozner have led me to believe that Mr. Pozner is telling the truth about the death of his son,” Dave Gahary, the principal officer at publisher Moon Rock Books, said Monday. “I extend my most heartfelt and sincere apology to the Pozner family.”
A Wisconsin judge issued a summary judgment Monday against authors James Fetzer and Mike Palacek, a ruling that was separate from the settlement between Pozner and the book’s publisher. A trial to decide damages has been set for October.

Dane County Circuit Judge Frank Remington, in Wisconsin, issued a summary judgement Monday that the book’s authors, James Fetzer and Mike Palecek, had defamed Pozner. One of their book’s false claims was that the death certificate for Pozner’s son, Noah, had been faked. A trial has been set for October to decide damages.
Pozner went to extraordinary lengths to prove the book wrong: His lawsuit included a redacted copy of the death certificate, and Pozner also provided public access to Noah’s birth certificate, report cards, and medical records, Pozner told TheWrap. He even took a DNA test to prove that Noah was his son.
“Fetzer claimed that it was fake and phony, and Noah never died and he never lived, and obviously those claims are false,” Pozner said. “A bunch of ridiculous claims, all of that was nonsense. It was proven.”
He stated: “If Mr. Fetzer wants to believe that Sandy Hook never happened and that we are all crisis actors, even that my son never existed, he has the right to be wrong. But he doesn’t have the right to broadcast those beliefs if they defame me or harass me. He doesn’t have the right to use my baby’s image or our name as a marketing ploy to raise donations or sell his products. He doesn’t have the right to convince others to hunt my family.”
While I agree with Mr. Pozner that no one should be threatening or harassing him or his family and that no one has the right to defame him, I would also add that the families of victims at Sandy Hook didn’t have the right to sue gun manufacturers for the guns used at Sandy Hook, nor do they have the right to push to attack the God-given, constitutionally protected rights of law abiding citizens in the manner they did.
Previously, a lawsuit was dropped against Wolfgang Halbig for his investigative work, but we’ll see what becomes of those aimed at Infowars’ Alex Jones.
