In this diversity action plaintiffs sought preliminary and permanent injunctions against defendants constructing a shopping center in Swanwyck, Delaware on the ground that the construction violated certain applicable building restrictions. After the court's refusal to allow a temporary restraint of the construction, both sides moved for summary judgment. In granting the defense motion and denying that of plaintiffs, Chief Judge Wright held that the restrictions urged by appellants were not binding on the land involved. His opinion fully covers the issue and does, we think, soundly and fairly decide it.


The judgment of the district court will be affirmed. 177 F.Supp. 491.
