The parents of two children killed in 2012 at Sandy Hook Elementary School have sued radio host Alex Jones and his Infowars website over claims that the Connecticut mass shooting was “a giant hoax.”

One suit was filed by Leonard Pozner and his ex-wife, Veronique De La Rosa, whose 6-year-old son, Noah, was killed. The other suit was filed by Neil Heslin, whose 6-year-old son, Jessie, also was killed. Both allege defamation.

Twenty children were among 26 people killed in the shooting. The shooter, Adam Lanza, also killed himself.

Texas Lawyer provides copies of the lawsuits, filed late Monday in Texas state court. Publications with coverage include the Hartford CourantBuzzFeed News, the New York TimesGizmodo and the Huffington Post.

As amazing as this may be to people under 30, many Mac users still need to send and receive faxes. That’s especially true for people who regularly deal with government agencies that won’t accept email, or email attachments, because of security concerns, or those bound by HIPPA guidelines. Certain industries, like construction, also still rely heavily on faxes. Yes, it’s silly to use 19th century fax technology in 2016, but you try convincing a government agency to change its ways.
