The U.S. Supreme Court today rejected Snipes' request for a hearing on whether he was tried in the wrong place. Snipes argues that he was a resident of New York (and New Jersey and California) at the time of his 2008 trial in Ocala, Fla.

But the Supreme Court's refusal to hear Snipes' appeal has definitely settled questions about his current residency.
