NFL: For quite some time now, former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre has been dealing with legal issues. In May, Mississippi native Brett Favre was implicated in the largest case of public fraud in state history. A civil lawsuit filed by the Mississippi Department of Human Services (MDHS) seeking to recoup funds diverted to the rich and powerful named the Hall of Fame quarterback as one of the original 38 defendants.
During a state audit, it was found that welfare funds were misappropriated by at least $77 million. Favre is now facing new charges in this case.

Things might be going from bad to worse after reports indicate that Favre failed to share certain text messages that could have been deemed important in the case.
According to AJ Perez of Front Office Sports, attorney’s for the Mississippi Department of Human Services (MDHS) dropped a 14-page filing on Brett Favre:
The claim that Favre, “‘failed to answer any of this discovery’ related to his text messages with others involved with the alleged scheme where around $8 million federal welfare funds were funneled to Favre and projects close to the Hall of Fame quarterback.”
In the filing, the MDHS claims, “despite being identified as the sender or recipient on the face of these text messages, Favre objected and claimed he could not verify many of these text messages’ authenticity.”
Additionally, accusations also state the former Green Bay Packers quarterback didn’t share text messages despite the MDHS “specifically requested messages with other defendants,” per AJ Perez.
In addition, MDHS reported that approximately 330,000 documents had been produced so far by over 40 defendants since the lawsuit was filed in May 2022. So far, Favre has provided just 24 pages of documents.
