877 F.2d 60: William O. Turner, Jr., Plaintiff-appellant, v. Edward Murray, Defendant-appellee
United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit. - 877 F.2d 60
Submitted April 18, 1989.Decided June 12, 1989
William O. Turner, Jr., appellant pro se.
Before HARRISON L. WINTER, PHILLIPS, and MURNAGHAN, Circuit Judges.
William O. Turner, Jr., appeals the district court's dismissal of this 42 U.S.C. Sec. 1983 action for failure to pay the assessed filing fee. Finding that the district court properly complied with the procedures approved in Evans v. Croom, 650 F.2d 521 (4th Cir.1981), cert. denied, 454 U.S. 1153 (1982), and did not abuse its discretion in dismissing the action without prejudice, we deny leave to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal and dismiss Turner's appeal. We dispense with oral argument because the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively.
