    WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court said Monday it won't review a decision throwing out a lawsuit stemming from the New England Patriots' 2007 "Spygate" scandal.
    The high court refused to revive a New York 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.

    Nor should they. They have a few other more important cases to decide.

    If the guy won this case, professional wrestling and the NBA would die in from a flurry of lawsuits.
