Gregory Walker, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Dave Williams, Warden, Powhatan Correctional Center,defendant-appellee, 875 F.2d 317 (4th Cir. 1989)Annotate this Case
Gregory Walker, appellant pro se.
Before K.K. HALL and MURNAGHAN, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.
Gregory Walker appeals the district court's dismissal of his 42 U.S.C. § 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, 525-26 (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 and dismiss the appeal. We dispense with oral argument because the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively.
