WASHINGTON -

The Supreme Court has rejected the appeal of Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan who challenged the team's pat-down searches.

High school civics teacher Gordon Johnston took his case to the high court after a loss in Atlanta's 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.

He had previously been successful in rulings from a state circuit judge and a U.S. District judge.

The pat-downs were halted for three years until their resumption in October. They continued as Johnston pursued his appeal, which the Supreme Court turned down Wednesday.

A call to the American Civil Liberties Union, which represented Johnston, was not immediately returned.
