Supreme Court won't hear Spygate case
Spygate is done.
In the court system of the United State, anyway.
The Supreme Court announced Monday that it will not review a decision to throw out a suit against the New England Patriots and coach Bill Belichick based on the 2007 scandal in which the coach had his team illegally videotape opponents.
According to the Associated Press, New Jersey attorney Carl Mayer, a season-ticket holder, had filed a class-action suit seeking millions of dollars claiming the Patriots and Belichick had deceived customers. In the suit, Mayer claimed the games were basically rigged.
The lawsuit was dismissed by a district court judge and federal appeals panel. Belichick and the Patriots was fined a total of $750,000 and the team lost a first-round draft pick.
