The Supreme Court won't review a decision throwing out a lawsuit stemming from the New England Patriots' 2007 "Spygate" scandal.

The high court on Monday refused to revive a New York Jets fan's class-action lawsuit against their football archrivals and coach, Bill Belichick.

Carl Mayer is a New York 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 NFL fined the Patriots and Belichick $750,000.

A U.S. District Court judge and a federal appeals panel dismissed Mayer's class-action lawsuit. The Supreme Court upheld that decision without comment.

The case is Mayer v. Belichick, 10-867.
