US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 953 F.2d 639 (4th Cir. 1992) Submitted Aug. 12, 1991. Decided Jan. 15, 1992

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Alexandria, No. CA-91-343-AM, James C. Cacheris, Chief District Judge.

Curtis Leon Taylor, Sr., appellant pro se.

E.D. Va.


Before WIDENER, MURNAGHAN and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges.



Curtis Leon Taylor, Sr. appeals the district court's dismissal, without prejudice, of Taylor's 42 U.S.C. § 1983 action for failure to comply with a court order. Our review of the record and other materials before us establishes that there was no abuse of discretion. See Figueroa Ruiz v. Alegria, 896 F.2d 645, 647 (1st Cir. 1990); Ballard v. Carlson, 882 F.2d 93, 95-96 (4th Cir. 1989), cert. denied, 58 U.S.L.W. 3527 (U.S.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.
