On Thursday, the jury in the Alex Jones trial awarded $4 million to the two parents, Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis as compensatory damages. Compensatory damages are intended to compensate the plaintiffs for their emotional suffering. On Friday, the trial will enter a new phase in which the court will address punitive damages. That probably means witnesses will testify about the worth of Alex Jones and how much money will be needed to serve as punishment.

Andino Reyna had asked the jury to award no more than $8, or one dollar for each harm the court has already found. See Texas Tribune report here.
