The Ninth Circuit affirmed the district court's dismissal of the Miron's claims because the distributor agreement specified the duties of the distributor and did not prohibit the unilateral activity that the company took. The distribution contract spelled out numerous duties of a distributor, but did not imply that the company itself could not do the types of things that the distributor was prohibited from doing. Because the agreement with Herbalife did not prevent a downline reassignment, there could be no breach of contract or any other type of contractual violation by the company.
