Manuel H. Venable, Plaintiff Appellant, v. T. Banks, Mr., Defendant Appellee, 16 F.3d 414 (4th Cir. 1994)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 16 F.3d 414 (4th Cir. 1994)

Submitted December 13, 1993. Decided January 6, 1994

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Alexandria. James C. Cacheris, Chief District Judge. (CA-92-1667-AM)

Manuel H. Venable, Appellant Pro Se.

E.D. Va.


Before WIDENER and LUTTIG, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.


Appellant appeals the district court's order dismissing his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1988) complaint without prejudice, due to his failure to pay a filing fee. Because Appellant failed to present a sworn affidavit and other evidence of indigency in support of his request for in forma pauperis status, we find no abuse of discretion in the district court's decision, and affirm.*  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.



We deny Appellant's Motion for Judgment and Motion for Oral Argument
