UNPUBLISHED UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT No. 18-1775 ADAM L. PERRY, Petitioner - Appellant, v. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Movant - Appellee, and WILLIAM EARL BRITT, Senior United States District Judge in his official capacity, Respondent. Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina, at Elizabeth City. James C. Dever III, District Judge. (2:17-cv-00054-D) Submitted: October 23, 2018 Before NIEMEYER, KING, and WYNN, Circuit Judges. Affirmed by unpublished per curiam opinion. Decided: October 25, 2018 Adam L. Perry, Appellant Pro Se. Christopher Michael Anderson, OFFICE OF THE UNITED STATES ATTORNEY, Raleigh, North Carolina, for Appellee. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. 2 PER CURIAM: Adam L. Perry appeals the district court’s order denying his motion for contempt, motion for trial, and application for injunction in this action the United States removed from state court under 28 U.S.C. § 1442(a) (2012). On appeal, we confine our review to the issues raised in the Appellant’s brief. See 4th Cir. R. 34(b). Because Perry’s informal brief does not challenge with specific argument the bases for the district court’s disposition, Perry has 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 grant leave to proceed in forma pauperis and affirm the district court’s judgment. We deny Perry’s motion for injunctive relief pending appeal and 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.
