9th Cir.: Contract can’t require court to grant equitable relief

From the 9th Circuit, in a case under Hawai’i law: “[T]he terms of a contract alone cannot require a court to grant equitable relief. In doing so, we adopt the accepted rule of our sister circuits that have addressed the question.” Barranco v. 3D Sys. Corp., No. 18-1608, slip op. at 16 (9th Cir. Mar. 12, 2020) (reversing grant of disgorgement remedy) (citing cases).
