Filed September 7, 2005.
Eric D. Miller (briefed and argued), and Robert M. Loeb (briefed), United States Department of Justice, Washington, DC, for the appellant.

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Northern District of California; Charles R. Breyer, District Judge, Presiding. D.C. No. CV-03-00210-CRB.
Before WALLACE, RAWLINSON, and BEA, Circuit Judges.
We affirm the judgment entered by the district court for the reasons stated in its opinion approving the appointment of the law firm. See In re Keravision, Inc., 273 B.R. 614 (N.D.Cal.2002).1 The trustee did not raise the rules of professional responsibility in challenging the law firm's appointment before the district court. See id. at 618. Therefore, we decline to address that issue on appeal. See United States v. Alisal Water Corp., 370 F.3d 915, 923 (9th Cir.2004).
