Hilton Hotels Corporation; and Hlt Corporation,plaintiffs/counter-defendants/appellants, v. Itt Corporation, Defendant/counter-claimant/appellee, 116 F.3d 1485 (9th Cir. 1997)Annotate this Case
Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Nevada, D.C. No. CV 97-95-PMP; Philip M. Pro, District Judge, Presiding.
Before GOODWIN, SCHROEDER and TASHIMA, Circuit Judges.
This preliminary injunction appeal comes to us for review under Ninth Circuit Rule 3-3. We have jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. § 1292(a) (1), and we affirm.
Our inquiry is limited to whether the district court has abused its discretion in denying the preliminary injunction, or has based its decision on an erroneous legal standard. See Does 1-5 v. Chandler, 83 F.3d 1150, 1152 (9th Cir. 1996). The record before us shows that the district court did not rely upon an erroneous legal premise or abuse its discretion in concluding that appellants' showing of probable success on the merits was insufficient to warrant preliminary injunctive relief. See id.
Accordingly, the district court's denial of a preliminary injunction is AFFIRMED.1
The panel unanimously agrees that this case is appropriate for submission without oral argument pursuant to Fed. R. App. P. 34(a) and Ninth Cir.R. 34-4. Accordingly, appellants' request for oral argument is denied
