STOCKHOLM May 6 (Reuters) - Sweden's SEB said late on Tuesday that the Swiss Supreme Court had denied it the right to refund withholding tax for the period 2006-2008, leading to a hit of 100 million Swiss francs ($108.1 million) to the bank's second quarter profit.

The Supreme Court was thereby reversing a lower court ruling to refund the claim, SEB said in a statement.
