SAN DIEGO (AP) — A jury has awarded more than $6 million to New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees in a lawsuit that claimed a San Diego County jeweler sold him over-priced diamonds.
The San Diego Union-Tribune says a Superior Court jury made the award Friday in a fraud suit Brees and his wife filed against a La Jolla jeweler last year. Brees wasn’t in court.
The suit claimed that Vihad Moradi improperly valued gems they bought as an investment at $15 million when they were worth millions less.
Moradi denied the allegations in court.
Brees was a quarterback with the San Diego Chargers in 2002 until joining the Saints in 2006. He led them to the National Football League championship in 2009.
