Let $M$ be the unit tangent bundle of a compact manifold with negative sectional curvatures and let $\hat M$ be a $\mathbb Z^d$ cover for $M$. Let $\mu$ be the measure of maximal entropy for the associated geodesic flow on $M$ and let $\hat\mu$ be the lift of $\mu$ to $\hat M$.
We show that the foliation $\hat{M^{s s}}$ is ergodic with respect to $\hat\mu$. (This was proved in the special case of surfaces by Babillot and Ledrappier by a different method.) Our method extends to certain Anosov and hyperbolic flows.
