Supreme Court Won’t Hear Patriots-Jets ‘Spygate’ Suit

The Supreme Court said Monday it won’t review a decision throwing out a lawsuit stemming from the Patriots’ 2007 “Spygate” scandal, the high court refused to revive a Jets fan’s class-action lawsuit against their football archrivals and coach, Bill Belichick.

Carl Mayer, a lawyer in Princeton, N.J., known for filing legal actions against New Jersey politicians, is a Jets season ticket-holder, he wanted millions of dollars from the Patriots and Belichick, claiming they deceived customers by secretly videotaping Jets coaches’ in-game signals. His lawsuit claimed fans spent large sums to see games that were essentially rigged.

The suit alleged that the Patriots taped the Jets’ signals in their twice-yearly contests for seven years, and sought triple damages for Jets fans based on a rough average of $100 a ticket. Mayer sought $185 million in damages for Jets fans alone.
