The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear ex-Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin’s appeal in his conviction in the May 2020 murder of George Floyd.
Chauvin had asked the nation’s high court to hear his case after the Minnesota Supreme Court declined to do so earlier this year.
Prior to that, the Minnesota Court of Appeals upheld his conviction.
The justices did not issue comments or explanation with the rejection. Chauvin was convicted and sentenced to 22.5 years in prison in 2021.
