Supreme Court rejects Peltier's parole hearing case

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected an appeal by American Indian Movement activist Leonard Peltier to seek early release for the murders of two FBI agents.

Without comment, the justices refused to review a decision by the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals. The lower court refused to move up the date for Peltier's next parole hearing.

Peltier, convicted of the June 1975 murders of the agents, is eligible for parole in 2009. He has been turned down for release in the past.
