Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of California, D.C. No. CV-95-00271-MLH; Marilyn L. Huff, District Judge, Presiding.
Before PREGERSON, D.W. NELSON and O'SCANNLAIN, Circuit Judges.
Plaintiffs-appellants Janine Angelotti, et al., appeal from the district court's dismissal of their complaint for improper venue under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(b)(3). We have jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. § 1291, and we affirm.
The district court dismissed appellants' complaint because each of their leasing contracts with defendant-appellee, RW Professional Leasing Services Corporation ("RW"), contained a forum-selection clause setting venue in New York. The district court declined to set aside the clauses for either fraud or inconvenience. We review the district court's decision to enforce the forum-selection clauses for abuse of discretion. Argueta v. Banco Mexicano, S.A., 87 F.3d 320, 323 (9th Cir.1996).
