Infowars, the flagship news site of conservative political performance artist Alex Jones, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Sunday in the US Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas. Two other sites owned by JonesPrisonPlanet TV and Infowars Health — have made the same application.

Infowars claims to have no more than $50,000 in assets, with liabilities running from $1 million to $10 million, and the other two operations report similar numbers.

While Jones has not made the reasons for his filing public, he has been embroiled in multiple expensive defamation cases in recent years, at the same time that revenue from his news enterprise has been choked off by his removal from mainstream social media websites.
