The aim of this note is to show that if \(\left\{ {{X}_{\alpha }},\pi _{\alpha }^{\beta },\Lambda  \right\}\) is an linearly ordered system of compact spaces such that each \({{X}_{\alpha }}\) has fixed point property for continuous multi-valued functions and each projection map is surjective, then the orbit space also has fixed point property for continuous multi-valued functions.
