In plaintiffs' suit against a city challenging the constitutionality of an ordinance that forbids the sale of a house without an inspection to determine whether it is in compliance with the city's building code, district court's dismissal of the suit for failure to state a claim is affirmed as, the ordinance is constitutional and therefore, there has been no violation of plaintiffs' rights, and as such, they are not entitled to reimbursement for the costs the ordinance imposed on them.
