New York Jets Fan Rebuffed by Supreme Court in Belichick `Spygate' Suit
The justices today turned aside an appeal by Carl J. Mayer, a New Jersey lawyer and Jets season-ticket holder who said the Patriots cheated him and other fans out of their right to see honest competition on the field. A lower court had thrown out the lawsuit.
Belichick and the Patriots were fined a combined $750,000 for videotaping the Jets’ signals during a 2007 game in violation of National Football League rules.
The case is Mayer v. Belichick, 10-867.
