This really is not how to manage a lawsuit. A Connecticut judge has ordered that Alex Jones be sanctioned $25,000  per weekday until he appears for his deposition.

Three former employees of the Lion & Rose restaurant sued their employer for violating the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act of 2020. The lawsuit came known as Summers v.
