UNPUBLISHED UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT No. 18-1578 ALBERT GREEN, JR.; EPHONIA M. GREEN, Plaintiffs - Appellants, and IDA M. GREEN, Plaintiff, v. BWW LAW GROUP, LLC; CARRIE M. WARD; JOSEPH DELOZIER, Defendants - Appellees. Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, at Greenbelt. Peter J. Messitte, Senior District Judge. (8:17-cv-03207-PJM) Submitted: November 29, 2018 Decided: December 3, 2018 Before DUNCAN and KEENAN, Circuit Judges, and TRAXLER, Senior Circuit Judge. Affirmed by unpublished per curiam opinion. Albert Green, Jr., Ephonia M. Green, Appellants Pro Se. Matthew Daniel Cohen, BWW LAW GROUP, LLC, Rockville, Maryland, for Appellees. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. 2 PER CURIAM: Appellants, Albert Green, Jr., and Ephonia M. Green, appeal the district court’s order dismissing their complaint alleging that a law firm and attorneys who worked for the law firm violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, 15 U.S.C. §§ 1692-1692p (2012), in regard to a state foreclosure proceeding. On appeal, we confine our review to the issues raised in the Appellants’ brief. See 4th Cir. R. 34(b). Because the informal brief does not challenge the basis for the district court’s disposition, the Appellants have forfeited appellate review of the court’s order. See Jackson v. Lightsey, 775 F.3d 170, 177 (4th Cir. 2014) (“The informal brief is an important document; under Fourth Circuit rules, our review is limited to issues preserved in that brief.”). Accordingly, we affirm the district court’s judgment. 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 3
