Clockwise from top left: “Attorney Christopher Mattei, attorney Norm Pattis, Judge Barbara Bellis and attorney Wesley Mead attend a virtual show cause hearing August 10, 2022, regarding the purported release of medical records of named plaintiffs in a Connecticut defamation lawsuit against Alex Jones. The nine plaintiffs in Connecticut are a first responder and the families of eight victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

A Waterbury judge wants to know whether the attorney for Infowars host Alex Jones in Connecticut sent confidential medical records to an attorney representing Jones in a recently completed Texas defamation trial.

Jones was sued for defamation in Connecticut and Texas by families of loved ones killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

Norm Pattis faces possible discipline after a lawyer for the families revealed that Pattis may have improperly shared confidential psychiatric records and depositions of the nine named plaintiffs in the Connecticut case with Jones’ lawyer in Texas.

In a Wednesday hearing in Waterbury, Judge Barbara Bellis said she doesn’t know yet if Pattis shared the documents. But if he did, he never disclosed it to the court, she said.

“I am clearly gravely concerned about what I had to hear in headlines on the news,” Bellis said. “It was never reported to me by counsel that there were any issues.”

A show-cause hearing for Pattis is scheduled for Aug. 17.
