A NY Jets Fan Wants The Supreme Court To Review “Spygate”

PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey lawyer wants the nation’s top court to review his lawsuit stemming from the New England Patriots’ 2007 “Spygate” incident.

Carl Mayer is a New York Jets season ticket holder. He and two other lawyers filed the class-action lawsuit.

They announced Thursday that they’d filed a petition seeking the high court review. It’s not known when or if the Supreme Court would consider it.

The lawsuit seeks millions from the Patriots and coach Bill Belichick, claiming they deceived customers by secretly videotaping Jets coaches’ signals. It claims fans spent large sums to see games that were essentially rigged.

A U.S. District Court judge and a federal appeals panel both dismissed the suit.

The NFL fined the Patriots and Belichick $750,000.

    LOL, I think you will find this Jet fan and lawyer has a poor law practice, thus giving him time to file such a frivolous law suit.
    Any further evidence this country needs tort reform…? I didn’t think so…!

    Tripping players on the sidelines the Jets are darn cheaters!!! It’s no wonder these guys back into the playoffs every year (well, at least the last 2 years). Tripping players?
    This kind of stuff never goes on in the NFL. Only a $100,000 fine! That’s attrocious…I’m a Patriots season ticket holder
    and a big time Lawyer for the Law Firm of Ben, Jarvis, Green and Ellis in Boston and I’m going file a class-action law suit
    and ask the U.S. Supreme Court to review the case. The lawsuit will seek millions of dollars from the Jets and coach Rex Ryan,
    claiming they deceived customers by secretly trying to trip opposing players. It will claim fans spent large sums to see games
    that were essentially rigged
