Before HARRISON L. WINTER, Chief Judge, and MURNAGHAN and SPROUSE, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM:


In a case complex rather than complicated, numerous issues were presented. After presentation by plaintiffs of their evidence at trial before a jury, the district court made findings and directed a verdict in favor of defendants. Involved were an issue of whether diversity jurisdiction existed, claims for rescission, assertions of breach of contract, breach of contract and warranty, negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, grounds for declaratory judgment alleged, and fraud was claimed. A review of the record discloses no viable grounds for challenging the district court's decision. Certainly neither clearly erroneous findings nor abuse of discretion were established.

The decision in favor of the defendants is

AFFIRMED.
