Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 931 F.2d 54 (4th Cir. 1991) Submitted April 8, 1991. Decided April 26, 1991

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Alexandria. Albert V. Bryan, Jr., Chief District Judge. (CA-90-665-AM)

Larry Ray Johnson, appellant pro se.

E.D. Va.


Before MURNAGHAN, SPROUSE and NIEMEYER, Circuit Judges.


Larry Ray Johnson appeals from the district court's order dismissing his complaint under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 for failure to make a showing of good cause or make payment of a partial filing fee as required by a previous order of the district court. Our review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we deny leave to proceed in forma pauperis and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Johnson v. Riddle, CA-90-665-AM (E.D. Va. May 14, 1990). 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.
