Submitted May 6, 1991. Decided May 29, 1991
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Richmond. Robert R. Merhige, Jr., Senior District Judge. (CA-91-130-A)
Johnathan Lee X, appellant pro se.
Before DONALD RUSSELL, WILKINSON and WILKINS, Circuit Judges.
Johnathan Lee X 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 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.
