This isn't really true.
By not hearing the case, the lower court is upheld, but all the Supreme Court denying cert (not hearing the case) means is that fewer than 4 justices wanted to hear it. But it is no comment on how the SC felt about the ruling.
As mentioned in one of the articles I read about this case, this decision could have broader ramifications in the entertainment industry where celebrities get paid for the use of their likeness. I'm not sure if it will ultimately be read that way, but it might.
In any case, in the immediate future it's a big set back for MLB and a big win for fantasy websites.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
