Wolfgang Halbig pockets $86,000 Cynthia Conlin Malpractice payout that was intended to pay Sandy Hook Facts

It looks like Wolfgang Halbig has found another way to profit off of his Sandy Hook scheme.

after arrest based on complaint by Sandy Hook parent.

According to recent filings in the Wolfgang Halbig vs Sandy Hook Facts lawsuit; Wolfgang Halbig has pocketed the $100,000 that was paid to him via malpractice insurance. In an email to Sandy Hook Facts attorneys he claimed he had "$86,000 left".  That money was intended to be used to pay his debt related the lawsuit.  He has not paid a dime!

Sandy Hook Facts attorneys were prepared to settle for the $100,000; however, Wolfgang decided to move forward to another hearing. A hearing in which he failed to appear.  Halbig lied to the court stating he didn't have notice and requesting a continuance; however, the court was not fooled. Judgment to Sandy Hook Facts as prayed.

Wolfgang Halbig Owes Sandy Hook Facts $325,571.39
Orlando Based Attorney Cynthia Colin who
represents Sandy Hook and Pulse Shooting denier Wolfgang Halbig
As shown in the "Order Final Judgement" below, Wolfgang Halbig has lost the lawsuit. He owes Sandy Hook Facts $325,572.39 plus interest since 2015.  Pursuant to state law, the time for appeals and motions has expired and the judgment is completely final.  The case is over.

Orlando Attorney Cynthia Conlin Malpractice Payout
Wolfgang Halbig filed a malpractice claim against Orlando Based attorney Cynthia Conlin for her part in the failed SLAPP suit against Sandy Hook Facts and others.

Cynthia Conlin represented the notorious Sandy Hook and Orlando Pulse shooting denier, Wolfgang Halbig, in a SLAPP lawsuit intended to silence critics of Wolfgang Halbig.  Wolfgang and Cynthia Colin lost their gambit. His critics were not silenced and the lawsuit was dismissed. They lost.

As part of the lawsuit, Wolfgang Halbig and Cynthia Conlin served an illegal subpoena on Sandy Hook Facts.  Sandy Hook Facts fought their illegal subpeona, winning in the trial court and in the appeal court.

Wolfgang Halbig's malpractice claim against Cynthia Conlin claimed costs related to her illegal SLAPP subpeona.failed.  Orlando based attorney Cynthia Conlin's malpractice insurance settled Wolfgang's claim for her insurance cap; $100,000.

According to court documents, the money was to pay the actual debt the lawsuit; ie, Wolfgang Halbig's debt to Sandy Hook Facts. But not a dime has been paid!  Wolfgang has apparently kept the money for himself, pocketing the dough!

Frivolous Motion filed by Wolfgang Halbig
Instead of paying his debt, Wolfang Halbig has filed a completely frivolous motion causing new damages to Sandy Hook Facts legal team exceeding $30,000! That number could even rise!

Wolfgang's latest motion is completely frivolous because all the time for motions has lapsed. The Court lacks jurisdiction to even rule on the motion per state law.

Not to mention, the motion is completely laughable unresearched nonsense on it's face without any rational legal basis whatsoever.  Whomever helped Halbig put that trash together should be ashamed of themselves.

But more importantly, even if Wolfgang's hogwash motion was actually a legal argument (which it's not), the Court could not rule on it.  It is over; done.  California law is clear:

Code CiV. Pro. § 663(d) [“power of the court t0 rule on a motion to set aside and vacate a judgment shall expire . . . 75 days after service upon the moving party by any party of written notice of entry of the judgment . . . If that motion is not determined within the 75-day period, or within that period as extended, the effect shall be a denial of the motion without further order of the court”].

75 days has long passed. Halbig's is done.

I have a novel idea for Halbig's "legal team"... read California law, for once.  Unlike Conlin, I doubt Halbig will file malpractice against his disbarred and disgraced ex attorney friends.

Worse, delerious Wolfgang Halbig, acting as his own attorney, decided to deluge Sandy Hook Facts attorneys with countless nonsensical and incoherent emails  causing that much more damage.

All in all, Wolfgang's legal team failed, again.

Sandy Hook Facts has filed a motion asking for compensation for Wolfgang's frivolous actions.  The court will rule on the motions 3/24.

The People versus Wolfgang W. Halbig

*World Wide Exclusive*
The People versus Wolfgang Halbig
**The case- Proving it up**

Florida Attorney Caleb Payne's connection to the arrest

As has been widely reported, Wolfgang Halbig is facing charges related to distributing the detailed personal information of Lenny Pozner; including his driver's license number, social security number, etc.  Halbig has engaged in this activity for years. In fact, a calling card of the hoaxer is "doxing" Sandy Hook victims personal information.

The probable cause statement for the arrest of Wolfgang Halbig details that Wolfgang Halbig also sent the "full and comprehensive TLOxp report about victim Pozner" to others.

Probable Cause for arrest  #7

In mid 2018, SandyHookFacts received the original Wolfgang Halbig email string with attached comprehensive TLOxp of Lenny Pozner.   This is the same report as the one at issue in the arrest and Probable Cause #7 above.

The email string was a series of emails between Wolfgang Halbig and Caleb Payne. Ultimately, Halbig forwarded this email string to countless others.  One of those was Newtown's infamous "Vlad", of duckgate fame, who forwarded the email to me.   I promptly forwarded the email to Lenny.

To be clear, Lenny has been dealing with Halbig and his hoaxers distributing his report and information since 2014 and the arrest of Halbig comes via that route; not this blog or information provided TO Lenny by Sandy Hook Facts.

There is substantial evidence of law breaking by numerous hoaxers; that is beyond the scope of this blog and certainly no credit should be applied in this direction.

First, before anyone claims there is some attorney-client privilege between Caleb Payne and Wolfgang; Wolfgang waived that when he forwarded this email to untold numbers of people. There is nothing secret here.  Caleb, additionally, knew or should know Halbig sends everything out and that Halbig has screwed over every attorney he has used.

With Halbig's propensity to forward every email he gets to government offices and considering the ongoing lawsuit discovery,: if you have ever emailed Wolfgang, lawyers and law enforcement probably have that.

If you are one of Halbig's evil minions, bent on harassing victims, you may soon have the knock on your door.

As a result of Caleb assisting Halbig, Halbig's and his hoard of hoaxer minions were enabled. They were posting the Lenny report online and emailing it to untold numbers of people with the intent and purpose of harassing families of the Sandy Hook tragedy.

I know Lenny would like to see more charges brought against Halbig's conspirators, so I will not name more of them or go into that further in this blog.   Let us hope his co-conspirators soon get a knock on the door at 1 am from the police and a mugshot photo.

As to the email string, attached to the email was an invoice and email from "Right Way Consulting" billing hoaxer attorney Caleb Payne $100 for "Pozner Research". The "research" was the 187 page "comprehensive" TLOxp report on Leonard Pozner.  Wolfgang Halbig promptly forwarded Caleb's email to hoaxer "Dorothy Hill" with the message "Here is what you requested".

Email from Right Way Consulting to Caleb Payne:

Here, Wolfgang is requesting Caleb Payne confirm Caleb would be his attorney (in the Pozner v. Halbig case).  Caleb ultimately represented Halbig pro bono for a portion of that case. That case was dismissed after Halbig fully complied in removing Pozner's personal information from his website.

Wolfgang to Caleb Payne: "Can you please send me an email that you are going to be my attorney. It will make me sleep better at night".  Caleb, obviously, had the goal of helping Halbig sleep cozy at night while giving Halbig the tools to harass a Sandy Hook victim.

It is no wonder Caleb would be a part of this and would obtain Pozner's report for Halbig.

Obviously Caleb knew or should know what Halbig and his minions would do with the report because Halbig does what he and his hoaxers have done for years, hurt victims of Sandy Hook.

And while Caleb Payne is not directly responsible for the criminal actions of Wolfgang Halbig, reasonable people do not give a well known hoaxer conspiracy theorist like Wolfgang Halbig reports on Sandy Hook victims.

Why would Caleb Payne not use reasonable prudence with the report and his privileges as an attorney?

Well, in an online interview with Dave Gahary (a co-defendant when Pozner sued Jim Fetzer), attorney Caleb Payne exposed himself as a fellow wide eyed irrational conspiracy theorist hoaxer when he openly questioned whether crisis actors were used at the Pulse Nightclub shooting.   Here is the relevant portion of that interview:

Payne went so far as to pay $100 to get Wolfgang a report on Leonard Pozner. A report that had NOTHING to do with the case versus Pozner.

So why would he? Payne should answer that question. Preferably in handcuffs and disbarred, but that is just opinion and hope.

Wolfgang Halbig finally arrested!

Wolfgang Halbig finally arrested!


Words cannot express how happy I am to report that Wolfgang Halbig has been arrested.

Wolfgang Halbig was arrested by Lake County Sheriff's Office Jan 27 at 1:27 am and released by $5,000 cash bond at 4:52 .

Every victim of Wolfgang Halbig and his online gang can rejoice because today, Wolfgang Halbig was in handcuffs.

Details that can be released are scarce; however, this is what I can tell you.

On Thursday, Jan. 23, I was advised a warrant had been issued for Wolfgang Halbig. I was asked to keep the information secret until the arrest was made.

In order to verify the information, I checked the Circuit Court of Lake County Website and found the case.  I took two screen captures.  There were two counts of felony 817.568(5B) and it showed a bench warrant had been issued 1/23/20.  Before I could take more than two screen captures, the case disappeared from the website.

Since I pre-wrote most this post, I'm not sure if it is back online yet because the site has not been checked.

Here are the two screen captures

The limited backstory I can discuss.

Wolfgang Halbig is accused of illegally handling the detailed background report of a Sandy Hook parent.  This was a report obtained by Wolfgang's attorney, Caleb Payne.

Lake County Sheriff's Office shows one third degree felony count:


Charge Category:
Doc. Type:

COURT DATE 2/24/20 at 8:30

My case speculation:

As with other hoaxers, Wolfgang Halbig's sanity will be questioned by the court and Wolfgang is going to be sent to a state hospital for treatment until he is sane enough to stand trial.

I personally hope he does quite a bit of time in the state hospital and then prison...if he is convicted.

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.

More links and case history:

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.
