As court proceedings continue for Alex Jones and Sandy Hook families, Fox 61 called upon University of Hartford Professor Jilda Aliotta for context and key points in the case during a segment this month.

Aliotta, an associate professor of politics, economics, and international studies at UHart’s College of Arts and Sciences, has studied judicial decision-making as well as the Supreme Court, and teaches courses in law and politics, as well as law and the justice system.

In the news piece, Aliotta explained some of the arguments presented by the families. Jones is on trial at Waterbury Superior Court for calling the Sandy Hook school tragedy a hoax.
