WASHINGTON —

The Supreme Court won't hear a Florida man's attempt to challenge the use of full-body scanners at airports.

The high court on Monday refused to hear an appeal by Jonathan Corbett, who wanted to challenge the Transportation Security Administration's use of full-body scanners and/or enhanced pat downs at airport security lines. Federal courts in Florida refused to hear his lawsuit, saying it could only be filed with the federal appeals court in Washington, D.C. The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta upheld the dismissal, and the Supreme Court refused to reopen the case.

Corbett, in an email, said he lives in Florida but used a Michigan mailing address on his court filing.

The TSA started allowing the use of the advanced-imaging technology in October 2010.
