Shirley Wardell Bailey, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Jack Dewan; Department of Corrections, Defendants-appellees, 74 F.3d 1230 (4th Cir. 1996)Annotate this Case
Submitted Dec. 14, 1995. Decided Jan. 18, 1996
Shirley Wardell Bailey, Appellant Pro Se.
Before ERVIN, Chief Judge, and WIDENER and WILKINS, 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 deny leave to proceed in forma pauperis and dismiss the 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.
