The Supreme Court refused yesterday to hear an appeal from a Jets season ticket holder who sued the Patriots and Bill Belichick for secretly videotaping Jets signals during games. The Jets fan is – and this will shock you – a lawyer who likes to file class action lawsuits.
A U.S. District Court judge and a federal appeals panel dismissed the lawyer’s class-action lawsuit and the 3rd Circuit readily agreed. The problem: the lack of damage proved fatal to the claim.
Surprisingly, because this is exactly the type of case that should be occupying the highest court in the land, the Supreme Court refused to hear arguments in the case.
This is laced with sarcasm because I think these kinds of lawyers, who are not only stupid but dead on arrival, bring down the whole profession.
