Snipes Appeal -- Let Me Out to Fight in Supreme Court

12/17/2010 7:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Wesley Snipes' attorneys just filed a new appeal -- asking the court to let him out of prison while he attempts to take his tax evasion fight all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

According to the documents -- filed today in Florida -- Snipes wants the U.S. Court of Appeals to overturn a decision that denied him bail last week ... right before he entered Federal Prison.

Snipes' lawyers want SUPCO to determine if Wesley should get a new trial because of alleged juror bias during his tax evasion case.

Sorry Mr. Snipes, the card said go directly to jail and do not pass go. What part of our legal system don't you seem to understand? How about this, you get your date to see the Supreme Court if they are willing to even hear your case (which I suspect they won't) and then you get to attend the hearings. Until then just enjoy your time in prison. Sorry buddy but you're no different than anybody else who fails to pay their taxes even if Judge Joe Brown is your buddy. Get a new attorney while you're at it, I would be embarassed to be represented by that clown.

I agree with Mr. Snipes...I am having a real tough time understanding why he is in jail but 6 of Obama's cabinet members OWE THE IRS and some have owed for 8 years!

I don't understand why Wesley Snipes thinks the tax payers should fund another trial when everyone knows he'll just be found guilty again. Does he have any idea how much he is costing?

Harvey said on Live today..the difference between Nick Cage and Wesley Snipes is that Cage owes back taxes, while Snipes tried to defraud the government out of taxes.
