Brett Favre to be deposed in lawsuit over use of Mississippi federal funds

221011 ROB Brett Favre jg 87c2db

NFL Hall of Famer Brett Favre is scheduled to be deposed in a Mississippi lawsuit that centers on allegations of misuse of state welfare funds, according to court documents.

Favre has been sued along with more than 20 other entities after Mississippi’s state auditor said more than $70 million in TANF welfare funds were misused for reasons that had nothing to with needy families.

Favre is scheduled to be deposed the morning of Oct. 26, according to a filing Monday in state civil court.

The Mississippi Department of Human Services last year sued him and other people or entities over what it says was a “gross misuse” of TANF — Temporary Assistance for Needy Families — funds.
