Submitted Oct. 25, 1993. Decided Nov. 19, 1993
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Norfolk, No. CA-93-256; Robert G. Doumar, District Judge.
Anthony Turner, pro se.
Before ERVIN, Chief Judge, and PHILLIPS and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges.
Appellant appeals the district court's order dismissing his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1988) complaint. The district court assessed a filing fee in accordance with Evans v. Croom, 650 F.2d 521 (4th Cir. 1981), cert. denied, 454 U.S. 1153 (1982), and dismissed the case without prejudice when Appellant failed to comply with the fee order. Finding no abuse of discretion, we affirm the district court's order. 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.
