Michael C. Antonelli, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Eduardo Gonzalez, Director, United States Marshals Service,defendant-appellee, 73 F.3d 356 (4th Cir. 1995)Annotate this Case
Submitted: November 16, 1995. Decided: December 21, 1995
Michael C. Antonelli, Appellant Pro Se.
Before MICHAEL and MOTZ, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.
Appellant appeals the district court's order dismissing his petition for mandamus relief. 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 deny leave to proceed in forma pauperis and dismiss the appeal. We also deny as moot Appellant's motion for release on bond pending appeal. 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.
