Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 894 F.2d 402 (4th Cir. 1990) Submitted: Nov. 27, 1989. Decided: Jan. 9, 1990

Melvin Douglas Saunders, appellant pro se.

Before PHILLIPS and MURNAGHAN, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.

PER CURIAM:


Melvin Douglas Saunders 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 facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the Court and argument would not aid the decisional process.

DISMISSED.
