Carlon Edward Pittman, Plaintiff-appellant, v. James H. Snodgrass, Facility Director (unit 22), James A.smith, Jr., Regional Administrator, Defendants-appellees, 883 F.2d 69 (4th Cir. 1989)Annotate this Case
Carlon Edward Pittman, appellant pro se.
Before WIDENER and CHAPMAN, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.
Carlon Edward Pittman 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 affirm the district court's order. We dispense with oral argument because the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively.
