"There will be no courtroom retake for actor Wesley Snipes as the Supreme Court announced Monday that it will not give further consideration to an appeal from the Hollywood star who is serving a three-year prison sentence for tax evasion. Snipes says his constitutional rights were violated when federal prosecutors filed charges in Florida and a judge denied his lawyers a hearing to explain why the venue was inappropriate. Snipes is housed in a federal prison in Pennsylvania and isn't scheduled for release until 2013." (06/06/11)
