Plaintiff-appellant-cross-appellee Dennis Curley appeals from a judgment entered in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (Knapp, J.) insofar as it incorporates an order granting summary judgment in favor of the defendant-appellee-cross-appellant 9*9 American Airlines, Inc. ("American"). In granting summary judgment, the district court applied New York law to dismiss claims of negligence and false imprisonment asserted by Curley against American. American cross-appeals from the same judgment insofar as it incorporates a putative order denying its motion for summary judgment to dismiss Curley's claims on the basis of Mexican law.

Applying Mexican law, we affirm the summary judgment entered in favor of American and dismiss the cross-appeal.
