United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. Godwin Nonyelum Chinagorom, Defendant-appellant, 917 F.2d 1302 (4th Cir. 1990)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 917 F.2d 1302 (4th Cir. 1990) Submitted Aug. 30, 1990. Decided Nov. 13, 1990

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina, at Raleigh. James C. Fox, Chief District Judge. (CR-87-58)

Godwin Nonyelum Chinagorom, appellant pro se.

John Stuart Bruce, Office of the United States Attorney, Raleigh, N.C., for appellee.



Before K.K. HALL, WILKINSON and WILKINS, Circuit Judges.


Godwin Chinagorom is a former federal prisoner now in the custody of the Immigration and Naturalization Service. He filed a motion in the district court seeking to enjoin the immigration court from considering an order of the district court entered on March 29, 1990, in his deportation proceedings while his appeal of the order was pending. The district court denied the motion for injunction on July 16, 1990, and Chinagorom appeals.

We find no abuse of discretion in the denial of this motion and, therefore, affirm the district court's July 16, 1990, order. We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal arguments are adequately presented in the materials before the Court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
