OPINION

JULIA SMITH GIBBONS, Circuit Judge. This appeal concerns a dispute over whether Superior Communications can significantly expand and upgrade its radio broadcast equipment located on a telecommunications tower owned by the City of Riverview, Michigan. Though Superior alleges violations of the Telecommunications Act and of its constitutional rights, this case in fact turns on the interpretation of a straightforward licensing agreement between the parties. Because this agreement prohibits Superior from expanding its equipment without approval from the City, we affirm the district court.

OPINION
_________________________

ALICE M. BATCHELDER, Circuit Judge. Two death-row inmates, Raymond Tibbetts and Alva Campbell, moved to enjoin their pending executions, claiming that Ohio’s midazolambased, three-drug execution protocol presents a constitutionally unacceptable risk of pain and suffering. The district court considered the proffered evidence, determined that the inmates had not met their burden, and denied the requested injunctions. We AFFIRM.
