US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 16 F.3d 411 (4th Cir. 1994) Submitted Jan. 20, 1994. Decided Feb. 3, 1994

Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina, at Spartanburg. William B. Traxler, Jr., District Judge. (CA-88-791-7-21)

C. Donald Stone, appellant pro se.

William Llewellyn Pope, Pope & Rodgers, Columbia, SC; Thomas Allen Hutcheson, Nelson, Mullins, Riley & Scarborough, Charleston, SC, for appellees.



Before WIDENER, WILKINS, and HAMILTON,*  Circuit Judges.


Appellant appeals from the district court's order denying, without prejudice, Appellant's application for in forma pauperis status. 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 this appeal on the reasoning of the district court. South Carolina National Bank v. Stone, No. CA-88-791-7-21 (D.S.C. June 11, 1993). 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.



Judge Hamilton recused himself from consideration of this appeal. The decision is filed by a quorum of the panel. 28 U.S.C. § 46(d)


Our separate denial of leave to proceed in forma pauperis is also without prejudice to future such applications
