WASHINGTON, Jan 7 (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday refused to hear an appeal over a Michigan city's zoning ordinance that led Wal-Mart Stores Inc to decide not to build a supercenter there.

Without comment, the court refused to hear a challenge by the Loesel family to new rules limiting the size of new construction.


The Loesels said the ordinance caused Wal-Mart to back out of a $4 million contract to buy their land, and was "selective" discrimination that violated their equal protection rights.
