Former Boston mob boss James "Whitey" Bulger has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to review his 2013 conviction for committing or ordering the murders of 11 people while he ruled the city's underworld in the 1970s and 80s.The Supreme Court declines to hear the vast majority of cases brought before it, meaning the odds are that Bulger's appeal will have little effect.Bulger is currently serving a life term without possibility of parole at a federal penitentiary in Sumterville, Florida.Bulger fled the city in 1994 on a tip that his arrest was imminent.
