Jury awards $6M in Drew Brees diamond-fraud lawsuit

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.

Last year, Brees set the all-time passing record for NFL quarterbacks.
