Tobey Maguire has agreed to pay $80,000 to be excluded from an ongoing lawsuit tied to his poker winnings at a high-stakes game organized by convicted Ponzi schemer Brad Ruderman, has learned.

The Spider-Man star's payout was revealed in new bankruptcy court documents filed Wednesday, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Maguire personally signed the settlement papers himself November 18, according to court docs. He said he did not receive anymore than the $80,000 from Ruderman that he's paying back, and had no knowledge of the ongoing con or where Ruderman's poker bankroll came from.

As we first reported, Maguire was fingered as a participant in a number of high-stakes Texas Hold 'Em matches held at various hotels in Beverly Hills by Ruderman, the ex-CEO of Ruderman Capital Partners, who's currently in custody at a Texas jail after multiple fraud-related convictions.

Other stars whose names have been mentioned in connection to the gambling ring include Ben Affleck and Leonardo DiCaprio.
