The Mississippi Supreme Court declined to intervene Wednesday in the state Department of Human Services’ ongoing civil lawsuit seeking to hold Hall of Fame NFL quarterback Brett Favre liable as a beneficiary of massive welfare fraud scandal admitted to by others.

Though Favre has not been accused of criminal wrongdoing, several others have pleaded guilty to various offenses, including former Mississippi Department of Human Services (MDHS) director John Davis and Nancy New, a non-profit director who admittedly used millions of dollars in Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) funds to construct a volleyball stadium at Favre’s alma mater, the University of Southern Mississippi, and to promote an anti-concussion drug produced by biotech company Prevacus, a company Favre had invested in.
