We affirm for the reasons given in the well-written opinion of the district court. Because there was an insufficient threat or likelihood of criminal prosecution, there was no "actual controversy" justifying a declaratory judgment for the purposes of 28 U.S.C. § 2201.




This disposition is not appropriate for publication and may not be cited to or by the courts of this circuit except as provided by 9th Cir.R. 36-3
