Erwin Donnell Bullock, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Commonwealth of Virginia, Defendant-appellee, 879 F.2d 862 (4th Cir. 1989)Annotate this Case
Submitted: June 6, 1989. Decided: July 10, 1989
Erwin Donnell Bullock, appellant pro se.
Before DONALD RUSSELL, MURNAGHAN and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges.
Erwin Donnell Bullock appeals the district court's dismissal of this 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 (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.
