George Paul Laroque, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Carl F. Troy, American Consul to Australia (sydney, N.s.w.,australia), Defendant-appellee, 838 F.2d 466 (4th Cir. 1987)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 838 F.2d 466 (4th Cir. 1987) Nov. 23, 1987

George Paul Laroque, pro se.

Before SPROUSE, ERVIN, and CHAPMAN, Circuit Judges.


George Laroque seeks to appeal from the district court order dismissing his complaint without prejudice for failure to pay the filing fee of $89.81. As 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), we deny leave to proceed in forma pauperis and dismiss the appeal. We dispense with oral argument because the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively.
