Ron Christopher Stewart, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Bill Jesse, Defendant-appellee, 838 F.2d 468 (4th Cir. 1988)Annotate this Case
Submitted: Aug. 18, 1986. Decided: Jan. 15, 1988
Ron Christopher Stewart, pro se.
Before JAMES DICKSON PHILLIPS, SPROUSE, and WILKINSON, District Judges.
Ron Christopher Stewart appeals the dismissal of his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 action. The district court entered judgment against Stewart on March 19, 1987. Forty days later, on April 28, 1987, Stewart noted his appeal.
As Stewart failed to file his notice of appeal within thirty days of entry of judgment and did not request an extension, his appeal must be dismissed for lack of jurisdiction. Fed. R. App. P. 4(a) (1), (5).
As it will not significantly aid in the decisional process, we dispense with oral argument.
