The Supreme Court will not review a decision to throw out a lawsuit stemming from the Patriots' 2007 "Spygate" scandal.

Carl Mayer, a New Jersey lawyer, wanted millions of dollars from both the Patriots and Bill Belichick for deceiving fans at the time of the incident. The Jets' season ticket-holder claimed that fans spent large sums of money to see games that gave New England an unfair advantage.

The lawsuit claimed that the Patriots taped the Jets' signals twice a year for the past seven years. Mayer was seeking triple damages for Jets fans on an average of $100 per ticket. He was seeking a total of $185 million in damages for Jets fans alone.

The Patriots were caught taping the Jets' signals in 2007. Commissioner Roger Goodell fined head coach Bill Belichick $500,000 and the organization an additional $250,000. The team was also stripped of a first-round draft pick.
