Jury selection is underway in the Connecticut defamation trial against Infowars host Alex Jones over the Sandy Hook shooting.

News 12 sources in the courtroom say jury selection resumed today in Federal Court in Waterbury.

The case was filed by relatives of victims of the Sandy Hook shooting who are seeking damages against Jones for claiming the school massacre was a hoax.

The trial is expected to begin next month.

The Connecticut trial is separate from a trial in Texas that ended earlier this month with a jury awarding more than $49 million to the parents of one of the slain children.

There is also a second lawsuit against Jones in Texas by Sandy Hook families over claims of deception.
