Brees Maybe Screwed In His Lawsuit

Last night, our newest arrival pointed out that Drew Brees is the newest Saints to sue former long snapper Kevin Houser for his role in a tax-credit investment scam that blew up in everyone’s face.

Brees filed his claim for $160,000 on Monday, after coach Sean Payton settled his lawsuit against Houser and on the same day word emerged that former Saints defensive coordinator and former Saints tight end Jeremy Shockey — who at one point ripped Houser mercilessly on Twitter — also have settled their claims.

Per the Associated Press, former Saints defensive end Charles Grant has a pending lawsuit against Houser. Other victims included former Saints linebacker Scott Shanle, former Saints punter Mitch Berger, and former Saints quarterback Archie Manning.

The controversy prompted the Saints to cut Houser in 2009, after eight years with the team and at the front end of the franchise’s only Super Bowl season.

Here’s the problem for Brees. Sooner or later, Houser is going to run out of money. It’s also possible that Brees, who filed his suit nearly four years after word of the scam first emerged, has run out of time, based on the applicable statute of limitations.

Regardless, it appears Brees has decided to move now in light of the reality that others like Payton were getting paid. As a legal and/or practical matter, Brees simply may be too late.

Yeah i would think SOL has ran out and Brees may not see a penny of it back.

Well he should be more focused on 20 million.... And not just a couple hundred thousand.

he may have waited so that others can collect theirs. I didnt read the whole article but what was everyones amount they were suing for

But still 4 years is a long time to wait. depending on the state. SOL usually isnt that long.

yeah I dont know why he waited so long. Maybe Houser is a friend or was a friend lol

If SOL is up Brees isnt getting jack. Unless he filed for a extension befor the SOL ran out. Most states its like 2 years. But it varies depending on crime.

Your linked article doesn't supply any facts to verify SOL. Its a fluff piece with little info.

4 years is a very long SOL.
