Cert Denied for John and Timothy Rigas

In a mere line, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected the appeal of John and Timothy Rigas - denying certiorari for the two (see here).  This is not surprising as the U.S. Supreme Court takes so few cases. The Petition, filed on behalf of Timothy and John Rigas former CFO and CEO of Adelphia, challenged their convictions.. The elder Rigas, now 82 years old, is serving a 15-year sentence, and Timothy is serving 20 years.
