Where plaintiff, which provided aircraft-related services, brought an action claiming a county and its airport commission interfered with its business operations, dismissal of the claims is affirmed because the plaintiff failed to state a breach of contract claim recognized by Arkansas law and also failed to plead a viable tort claim, and the district court was within its discretion to decline to exercise supplemental jurisdiction over two remaining state law claims.
Judgment is affirmed.
