FOR PUBLICATION UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE NINTH CIRCUIT REGAL-BELOIT CORPORATION; VICTORY FIREWORKS, INC.; PICC PROPERTY & CASUALTY COMPANY LIMITED SHANGHAI BRANCH; ROYAL & SUN ALLIANCE INSURANCE CO. LTD., Plaintiffs-Appellants, v. KAWASAKI KISEN KAISHA LTD.; KLINE AMERICA, INC.; UNION PACIFIC RAILROAD COMPANY, Defendants-Appellees. No. 06-56831 D.C. No. CV-06-03016-DSF ORDER On Remand from the United States Supreme Court Filed August 31, 2010 Before: Stephen S. Trott, Sidney R. Thomas and Raymond C. Fisher, Circuit Judges. ORDER In light of the Supreme Court's decision in Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha Ltd. v. Regal-Beloit Corp., 130 S. Ct. 2433 (2010), the parties' agreements are governed by the Carriage of Goods by Sea Act ("COGSA"), 46 U.S.C. 30701 note, rather than by the Carmack Amendment, 49 U.S.C. 11706. See Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, 130 S. Ct. at 2449. Therefore the parties are bound by the Tokyo forum selection clause contained in the bills of lading. The decision of the district court dismissing the instant case is affirmed. 13031 13032 REGAL-BELOIT CORP. v. KAWASAKI Defendants-appellees are entitled to costs, as well as recovery of costs previously paid to plaintiffs-appellants. AFFIRMED.
