Wolfgang Halbig vs SHF lawsuit - SHF awarded $262,000!

$262,000 Awarded in monumental victory!

Legal victories versus hoaxers continue!

A four year legal battle finally concluded ON 11/5 with Wolgang Halbig failing to appear in court and judgment for SHF in the amount of $261,967.89 as compensation for attorney fees and including an additional 25% as compensation for Halbig's shenanigans.

Halbig and Infowars- a hoaxer team

Wolfgang Halbig sued a number of bloggers with a SLAPP suit to attempt to silence them; SHF fought back and has soundly defeated Halbig at every hearing and on every point.  The first judgment totaling about $23,000.  Halbig then appealed and lost. ShF cross appealed because $23,000 was too low. The appeal court agreed and  instructed the trial court to recalculate the original insufficient award to SHF and to now include cost on appeal.  The appeal was a published decision, meaning it is now new case law.


Prior blogs have discussed this in detail.

After the appeal, Halbig fired his attorney and laughingly attempted to represent himself.

On Monday, prior to the hearing, Halbig apparently lied to the court when he phoned in a request to continue. He reportedtly tried to claim he did not have notice; his lie only more preposterous considering the countless ridiculous emails he has sent to SHF attorneys in preparation for the hearing.

Sample email from 10/29:

The court was not impressed with Halbig's nonsense and the hearing went forward.

SHF fully anticipates Halbig will continue his shenanigans upon the Court and the award will continue to rise. 

Official orders should issue relatively soon.

Wolfgang Halbig vs Sandy Hook Facts - the lawsuit coming to a close

Wolfgang Halbig vs Sandy Hook Facts - the lawsuit's final battle!

Halbig's fundraising took a nosedive after sound debunking by SHF.

The stage has been set for what is hopefully the last round of the four year legal battle - Wolfgang Halbig vs Sandy Hook Facts.

As many know, in 2015 Wolfgang Halbig violated free speech when he attempted to use the courts  to silence Sandy Hook Facts.

 The case has trogged through the courts for years; however, it appears to be drawing to a final conclusion.

 On 9/17/19, on remand from appeal, the trial court will hear oral argument on the amount Wolfgang Halbig owes Sandy Hook Facts.  The only issue on the table at the hearing is "How much" is owed to SHF.  SHF filed briefs seeking compensation for the rightfully owed amount of nearly $300,000.

That amount could go up, depending on actions of Halbig and findings by the Court.  Halbig, of course, filed briefs attempting to duck his obligations entirely.

A brief background -
Wolfgang Halbig, with his attorney, Orlando based Cynthia Conlin, filed suit against a people who were speaking out against Halbig's vile lies and defamation of Sandy Hook families and victims.  Debunking Halbig was hurting the fundraising. Cynthia Conlin and Halbig wanted the opposition silenced.

Wolfgang Halbig's attorney Cynthia Conlin filed a SLAPP suit against debunker and those speaking up for Sandy Hook victims on Halbig's behalf.   Soundly crushed on all fronts, Halbig has filed a malpractice claim against Conlin.

A lawsuit to silence people is called a SLAPP suit (Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation).  While Halbig and Cynthia Conlin's SLAPP suit silenced a number of Halbig's detractors; SHF refused to be silenced by their bullying and hired counsel.  More information on SLAPP can be found on the links below.

Here is a timeline and informational links:

May 2015:  SHF's post forshadowed what would happen if Halbig decided to bring Sandy Hook Facts into their SLAPP lawsuit. SHF, a California resident, would use California's anti-SLAPP laws to defeat Halbig and Cynthia Conlin's anti-free speech lawsuit. 

Ultimately, SHF's attorneys followed SHF's blue print to set precedent in California.


Aug 2015: Wolfgang Halbig decided to ignore California law when he attempted to use a subpeona to drag Sandy Hook Facts into his ridiculous Florida lawsuit without justification.  Sandy Hook Facts and his skilled counsel prevailed and were awarded $22,495; far below what was owed.  Halbig, soundly defeated in California, soon had his his entire Florida SLAPP suit dismissed by the Court.

Halbig promptly appealed the California Decision. SHF cross appealed because the amount awarded was far below what was owed by Halbig.



Nov 2018:  Victory on appeal.    In a precedent setting published decision, SHF prevailed over Halbig on every point before the appeal court.  Halbig was completely defeated. The case was returned to the trial court to recalculate the amount owed.

Lenny Pozner sues James Fetzer over Death Certificate Defamation - Sandy Hook Lawsuit

Lawsuit Filed!
Lenny Pozner vs. James Fetzer over "Nobody Died at Sandy Hook"
Noah Pozner Death Certificate Claim

Lenny Pozner has sued James Fetzer for defamation.  The suit also names Mike Palecek and the Florida based company Wrongs without Wredemedies as Defendants.  Wrongs without Wremedies publish the second edition of "Nobody Died at Sandy Hook".  The suit cites the "Expanded 2016 Revised" edition as the basis for the claim.

 The nine page, two count complaint alleges defamation and conspiracy and was filed in Fetzer's home district in Dane County, Wisconsin.


Prof. James Fetzer
The suit cites Fetzer's "long history of harassing [Pozner] and other Sandy Hook families with defamatory lies" and that Fetzer has "slandered repeatedly"; however, the case focuses on one narrow falsehood; Fezter's outrageous claim that Pozner "circulated a forgery of NP's death certificate".

The appropriate passage reads:

16. The second edition of “Nobody Died At Sandy Hook” accuses Plaintiff of issuing and/or possessing a forged copy of N.P.’s death certificate. In particular, page 183 of Nobody Died At Sandy Hook states: “Noah Pozner’s death certificate is a fake, which we have proven on a dozen or more grounds.” At page 232 the book states, [Mr. Pozner] sent her a death certificate, which turned out to be a fabrication.” At page 242, the book states, “As many Sandy Hook researchers are aware, the very document Pozner circulated in 2014, with its consistent tones, fonts, and clear digital manipulation, was clearly a forgery.” 

17. Mr. Fetzer’s publication of this false accusation against Plaintiff was not limited to the book.  He repeated that false statement on one or more blog posts, including, e.g., https://phibetaiota.net/2018/08/james-fetzer-in-solidarity-with-alex-jones-how-we-know-sandy-hook-was-a-fema-drill-nobody-died-obama-officials-confirmed-it-was-an-anti-gun-propaganda-exercise. That blog post is dated August 5, 2018. There, Defendant Fetzer made the following false statement: “It [N.P.’s death certificate] turned out to be a fabrication, with the bottom half of a real death certificate and the top half of a fake, with no file number and the wrong estimated time of death at 11 AM, when ‘officially’ the shooting took place between 9:35-9:40 that morning.”  That statement is false, both in its particular fact and in the main point, essence, or gist in the context in which it was made, because N.P.’s death certificate is not a fabrication or forgery. That context of that statement referred specifically to Plaintiff, the previous sentence reads: “Kelley Watt had over 100 hours of conversation with ‘Lenny Pozner’, who purports to be his father and who sent Kelley a death certificate for ‘Noah’ as proof that he had died, which we included in the book.”

Few, if any, have defamed Sandy Hook famililes more than the extremist antisemitic, James Fetzer.  He intentionally spreads lies, including lies that he invents himself, personally doctors photos to fit his agenda, refuses to conduct reasonable investigations or present facts, even once he learns of the them.  He creates his agenda then works in his hurtful slanderous lies to fit that agenda.  Any honor he had as a professor and an ex-marine and long since passed.

James Fetzer's first edition was debunked and his deceptive tactics exposed by Sandy Hook Facts:

"Nobody died at Sandy Hook" debunked blog posts:

"Jim Fetzer and James Tracy Profit off of Victimizing Victims and Children"

"Ten Reasons Jim Fetzer's Sandy Hook Book is Fiction"

"Hartford Trade Service - Fellowship of the Minds Debunked"

"Sandy Hook Victims not listed in Social Security Death Index SSDI - DEBUNKED"

CA Court of Appeals: SandyHookFacts prevails over Wolfgang Halbig - AntiSLAPP

After months of waiting, the California Court of Appeals Sixth District has ruled in favor of Sandy Hook Facts over Wolfgang Halbig affirming SHF's victory over Wolfgang Halbig in Court. 

 The appeal was argued before a three judge panel last week. The appeal court found that SHF had indeed prevailed in the original 2015 case. Halbig appealed the 2015 loss contending that with dismissal, he had actually prevailed over SHF.  SHF cross-appealed the award of cost because the trial court awarded SHF about $23,000; far below what SHF feels should have been awarded.

The appellate victory was a total victory for SandyHookFacts and his legal team.  The appeals court affirmed that dismissal, SHF prevailed and was entitled to fees and costs.  The appeal court also found that the the award was not appropriately calculated and remanded it back to the trial court for further consideration.  The implication of that is that the award was too low.

Outstanding attorneys for SHF were James P. Wagoner and Graham Van Leuven of McCormick, Barstow, Shepard, Wayte & Carruth. SHF has ordered a copy of the oral arguments and may post it, depending on advise of counsel.

California Attorney for Wolfgang Halbig was Nicholas Ranallo.
Florida Attorney who filed Halbig's original SLAPP suit was Orlando based attorney Cynthia Conlin.

Orlando based attorney Cynthia Conlin represented Halbig when she filed Halbig's
 suit to silence Halbig's critics. Anti-free speach lawsuits are called "SLAPP suits"
The appellate decision is a "Published Decision" in California meaning it may be used as precedent throughout the state.  Halbig's loss is now precedent setting case law.   California leads the nation with laws to protect free speech against lawsuits like Cynthia Conlin and Wolfgang Halbig file.

The appellate decision may be read here:

The case centered around Halbig's attempt to sue into silence several people who were exposing his scheme.  Halbig makes tens of thousands of dollars making false claims about the Sandy Hook shooting and himself to trick people into donating to him.  His lawsuit was designed to silence and chill free speech of those critits; as such it is known as SLAPP suit (Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation).   SHF used California's Anti-SLAPP statutes to defeat Halbig's and recover attorney fees.

The appeal court remanded the case back to the trial court to determine an appropriate award of fees. Based on the ruling, it appears the Appeal Court might expect that 192 hours at about $250 hours (+/-) court costs plus paralegal fees might be appropriate; far exceeding the original $23,000 award. The appeals court also awarded fees and costs of the appeal.  Additionally, there will be interest on the award as the case has sat for about two years.  SHF estimates the award will exceed $100,000.

Fast fact:
Despite Halbig's numerous promises to his donors, this SLAPP suit was the only lawsuit Halbig ever filed with donation funds.

May 27, 2015 - Blog Post
Wolfgang Halbig had filed a lawsuit against several John Does.  Unaware that SHF was going to be a party to the case, SHF published information for the  Defendants with hints on how, with proper legal advice, one could fight Halbig's suit using California's Anti-SLAPP statutes.  Halbig did not take the hint and attempted to drag SHF into the anti-free speech lawsuit. Ultimately, this blog post would be a template of exactly how SHF defeated Halbig in Court.

Wolfgang Halbig files false affidavits into Federal Court as Defendant's lose ground

UPDATE:  Alex Jones cites the false affadavit in his latest motion:  http://civilinquiry.jud.ct.gov/DocumentInquiry/DocumentInquiry.aspx?DocumentNo=15824514

Wolfgang Halbig is desperate to get out of the Connecticut lawsuit brought by Sandy Hook families.  Sandy Hook Families are currently suing Alex Jones, Wolfgang Halbig, and Cory Sklanka for their defamation and other harm.

Wolfgang Halbig  is a prominent public figure hoaxer leader who claim the Sandyhook shootings were a government hoax. Hoaxers g nerally claim the families were “crisis actors” who are lying about losing their children and family for profit, fame , and to take people’s guns.

One of Halbig main goals is to create distance between himself and Cory Sklanka, aka "Sleight of Sin".  With Cory Sklanka in the case, the Federal Court has no diversity jurisdiction and the case will be heard in Connecticut state court.  Alex Jones is even citing Halbig's false affidavits as their "proof" hoping to prove Sklanka was "fraudulently joined".

Unfortunately for Halbig and Jones, Cory Sklanka very publicly worked with Wolfgang Halbig and in fact, during the time in question, acted as Wolfgang Halbig's agent to the FOIA Commission and direct adviser to Wolfgang Halbig.

 This can be proven because Sklanka himself filmed some of his Halbig work and posted it online.  In fact, it's still available on hoaxer channels!

Despite the readily available proof, Wolfgang Halbig has filed an affidavit stating "I did not know Mr. Sklanka at the time" (of the hearing).  Here is the relevant portion (document in full below).

In the above statement Wolfgang is refusing to attend any hearing where the Plaintiffs would play a video proving Halbig's previous affidavit was false.  I don't blame him. That would be embarrassing for Halbig.    Previously, Halbig had told the court that Cory Sklanka "did not operate any camera; he did not have a camera; he has never touched a camera in my presence."  He also claimed Sklanka did not "co-host any broadcasts with me."

Wolfgang can rest easy because there will not be a hearing; the Court already ruled against him; citing in part, the fact that Halbig's claims had been rebutted.  Order for Remand.  Halbig's first affidavit is discussed by the Court on Page 10 of the Order.

Cory Sklanka - Camera Person

In the screen capture from the April 24, 2015 hearing Cory can be seen operating the camera and talking with another Sandy Hook Justice member, Jonathan Reich.    From left to right are  Cory Sklanka with headphones operating a camera rig;  Dan Bidondi of Infowars with Camera rig; Jonathan Reich wearing a baseball cap, and Wolfgang Halbig, staring straight at Sklanka. Halbig is sitting next to his long time attorney, L. Kay Wilson.  Wolfgang's claim Cory "never operated a camera" is completely false.

Short video clip of Cory Sklana, Jonathan Reich, and Dan Bidondi working during Halbig's 2015 hearing. Sklanka is clearly operating a camera with live stream phone attached to the tripod.

Cory Sklanka - Agent of Wolfgang Halbig to the Commission

Wolfgang Halbig is claiming he did not know Cory Sklanka during the April 2015 hearing. In reality, Cory Sklanka met with the FOIA Commission on March 30, 2015 and explicitly claimed to be acting on behalf of Wolfgang Halbig and as Wolfgang Halbig's agent before that state agency. Sklanka was working on behalf of Wolfgang Halbig because the Commission had continued Halbig's March 2015 hearing and Halbig was throwing a tantrum.    Sklanka's entire purpose at the FOIA Office was Halbig, Halbig's concerns, and Halbig's case.

The day after the hearing, Wolfgang Halbig, in a broadcast with Sklanka (aka SOS, Sleight of Sin), discussed the advice he received from Sklanka BEFORE THE HEARING.

Here are short video clips disproving Halbig's claim that he "did not know Mr. Sklanka".

Cory Sklanka - Co-Host of Wolfgang's Sandy Hook Justice
Cory Sklanka, in fact, co-hosted the November 15, 2015 Sandy Hook Justice report titled "Sandy Hook Justice Report with special guest James Hastings - November 15, 2015 - Episode 2"
The video has been removed from Youtube; however, it has been archived as evidence.

Perjury before the Court
The fact is, perjury is a crime.  Wolfgang claims he did not know Cory Sklanka prior to 4/24/15, among many other statements regarding his relationship with Cory Sklanka, are demonstrably false.  The authorities should investigate to determine if Halbig committed a crime.

It remains to be seen if Cory Sklanka and Alex Jones are going to continue to support Halbig's false affidavits.

Wolfgang Halbig and Cory Sklanka are desperate to get out of Sandy Hook Lawsuit

Irony drips as Sandy Hook Justice crew asks the Federal Court
"Let me out of the lawsuit!"

Wolfgang Halbig and his sidekick, Cory Sklanka, have filed motions to dismiss the suit brought by Sandy Hook parents.  Why would these two try to sneak out now?

Infowars and Wolfgang Halbig in Connecticut 
Wolfgang and his crew have raised, by my count, nearly $200,000 telling their  followers they were going to bring a lawsuit.   Apparently, tired of waiting for the lawsuit that will never be, Sandy Hook families have saved SHJ the trouble and sued them. Suddenly, the SHJ crew want no part of a lawsuit!

Short video clip of the SHJ crew in Connecticut as they harangued Newtown with nonsensical FOIA requests:

Wolfgang has lied to his followers for years promising to bring a federal lawsuit.  He never did, even as they poured money into his pockets for just such a purpose.

Here is a 2014 Halbig clip promising he "is getting ready to file" the federal suit and has "two attorneys drafting the federal civil lawsuit".

Halbig, to date, has NEVER filed his federal lawsuit.

Cory Sklanka often made videos and trolled my channels threatening the same lawsuits.

I think Cory holds the distinction of never being correct a single time; even if only accidentally.

Now that the parents have brought the lawsuit to their doorstep, the Sandy Hook Justice crew is desperate to have the case dismissed!

Rather than use some of the thousands of dollars in donations; Halbig is representing himself and receiving legal assistance from disgraced and disbarred and/or suspended Colorado attorney Alison Maynard.

Alison Maynard must be really out of practice since being disbarred/suspended because her motion is, frankly, pathetic.

Alex Jones and Cory Sklanka are at least represented by real attorneys.

Sklanka's request:

Disgraced former attorney Alison Maynard's laughable motion on behalf of Wolfgang Halbig, under the guise of "pro se".

Alex Jones Piles Lies on Top of Perjury

Alex Jones is claiming the media is lying when they are are reporting that he asked for $100,000 in attorney fees.   Alex Jones can be easily proven to be a liar; but first, let's prove his perjury.  In Texas, caught in perjury, he changed his tune and withdrew his request. But that is after he was caught in perjury.

Perjury in US District Court  - Connecticut

Alex Jones, in an attempt to gain favor with the court, waived fees promising he has "no desire to collect money from the parents of Sandy Hook victims".


Alex Jones is lying to the Federal Court in Connecticut Court. In Texas, Alex Jones was requesting attorney fees from parents of slain Sandy Hook Children. Exactly the opposite of what he just told the Connecticut Court.

In Texas, nearly simultaneously, he asked for over well $100,000 from parents of Sandy Hook victims.  Alex Jones, via personal affidavit, and by and through his attorney Mark Enoch filed "Defendant's First Supplement to Motion to Dismiss Under the Texas Citizens Participation Act".

In that Motion, Alex Jones laid out his request for exhorbanant fees.

Here he wants $85,700.75 plus $42,225 for preparing one motion.

Then he wants another $28,000 in fees just in case the Defendants appeal.

Alex Jones asked for up to $155,975.75 in fees for his motion.

After he was caught in perjury before the Connecticut Court, he changed his tune. But he did ask.

More hoaxes, lies, and perjury by Alex Jones.
