Albert L. JACOBS, Jr.; Linda Spector Jacobs, Plaintiffs-Appellants, v. WHEATON VAN LINES, INC., Defendant-Appellee.
Decided: December 18, 2019
Before: WALLACE, CANBY, and TASHIMA, Circuit Judges.
Albert L. Jacobs, Jr., Scottsdale, AZ, pro se. Linda Spector Jacobs, Scottsdale, AZ, pro se. Steven T. Long, Sandoval Law, PLLC, Phoenix, AZ, Loren Robert Ungar, Rose Law Group, P.C., Scottsdale, AZ, for Defendant-Appellee.
Albert L. Jacobs, Jr. and Linda Spector Jacobs appeal pro se from the district court's judgment dismissing their declaratory judgment action against Wheaton Van Lines, Inc. We have jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. § 1291. We affirm.
In their opening brief, plaintiffs fail to raise, and therefore have waived, any challenge to the district court's ruling that it lacked subject matter jurisdiction over their declaratory judgment action. See Indep. Towers of Wash. v. Washington, 350 F.3d 925, 929 (9th Cir. 2003) (“[W]e will not consider any claims that were not actually argued in appellant's opening brief.”); Acosta-Huerta v. Estelle, 7 F.3d 139, 144 (9th Cir. 1993) (issues not supported by argument in pro se appellant's opening brief are waived).
Contrary to plaintiffs' contention, the district court resolved plaintiffs' declaratory judgment action against defendant before it addressed defendant's action against Ms. Jacobs.
We reject as without merit plaintiffs' contention that the district court should have ruled on their motion for summary judgment on the merits.
