The Supreme Court has denied the request for a hearing for a Minnesota man who was convicted of trying to join ISIS.
The request filed on the behalf of Mohamed Farah was denied Wednesday, according to court records.
Farah was seeking to have his conviction overturned.
Abdirahman Daud, who was also convicted, has appealed to the Supreme Court. The court has yet to make a decision on Daud's request.
Farah, Daud and a third man convicted in the case sought to have their convictions overturned in the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
The appeals court upheld the convictions in August.
Farah and Daud each received 30 years.
