(8:17-cv-01094-TDC) Submitted: September 20, 2018 Decided: October 4, 2018 Before NIEMEYER and DUNCAN, Circuit Judges, and HAMILTON, Senior Circuit Judge. Affirmed by unpublished per curiam opinion. Iris McClain, Appellant Pro Se. Virginia Wood Barnhart, WOMBLE BOND DICKINSON (US) LLP, Baltimore, Maryland; Bryan Gales, Baltimore, Maryland, Brett Lawrence Messinger, DUANE MORRIS, LLP, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, for Appellees. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. 2 PER CURIAM: Iris McClain appeals the district court’s order granting Defendants’ motion to dismiss her civil complaint. We have reviewed the record and perceive no reversible error. Accordingly, we grant leave to proceed in forma pauperis. With the parties’ consent, we dismiss the Appellees identified in the joint stipulation. We affirm for the reasons stated by the district court. McClain v. Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., No. 8:17-cv-01094-TDC (D. Md. Mar. 8, 2018). * We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before this court and argument would not aid the decisional process. AFFIRMED * We find no merit to McClain’s contentions on appeal that the district court was biased against her and that the court’s determinations were tainted by a mistaken view of the facts. 3
