Former NFL quarterback Brett Favre’s deposition in the ongoing welfare fraud civil litigation has been postponed until December.

Days after local and national news outlets reported that Mississippi Department of Human Services had scheduled the time and place for Favre to give sworn testimony in the case, both parties agreed to push the date from Oct. 26 to Dec. 11.

The initial date would have meant that the face-to-face Favre inquiry, a national media event, would have taken place just days before a heated gubernatorial race, for which the welfare scandal has emerged as a centerpiece.

But both Favre and Mississippi Department of Human Services, the state agency suing him and 46 others, requested that the testimony transcript be held confidential, at least initially.

The latest notice, filed Friday, does not name a location for the planned deposition.
