Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Richmond. Richard L. Williams, District Judge. (CA-91-417)

Gary Lee Harris, appellant pro se.

E.D. Va.


Before K.K. HALL and PHILLIPS, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.



Gary Lee Harris appeals the district court's dismissals of his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 actions 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 these actions without prejudice, we affirm the district court's order in No. 91-6182, and deny leave to proceed in forma pauperis and dismiss the appeal in No. 91-7660. 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.

No. 91-6182, AFFIRMED.

No. 91-7660, DISMISSED.


These appeals were consolidated by this Court
