Eddie Munoz, Plaintiff-appellant, v. County of Clark, Defendant-appellee, 133 F.3d 928 (9th Cir. 1997)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 133 F.3d 928 (9th Cir. 1997) Submitted Dec. 15, 1997. **Decided Dec. 19, 1997

Before: SNEED, LEAVY and TROTT, Circuit Judges.


This appeal from the district court's order denying appellant's motion for preliminary injunctive relief comes to us for review under Ninth Circuit Rile 3-3. We have jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. § 1292(a) (1), and we affirm.

Our sole inquiry is whether the district court abused its discretion in denying preliminary injunctive relief. See Gregorio T. v. Wilson, 59 F.3d 1002, 1004-05 (9th Cir. 1995). The record before us shows that the court did not rely on an erroneous legal premise or abuse its discretion in concluding that appellant had failed to demonstrate the existence of serious legal questions or that the balance of hardships tipped in favor of appellant and in denying preliminary injunctive relief. See id. The court's factual findings and application of legal standards are not clearly erroneous. See id. Accordingly the court's order denying the preliminary injunction is affirmed.



The panel finds this case suitable for decision without oral argument. Fed. R. App. P. 34(a); 9th Cir. R. 34-4; 9th Cir. R. 3-3(d)
