UNPUBLISHED UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT No. 18-6983 ANTONIO SHEPPARD WILLIAMS, Plaintiff - Appellant, v. HENRY, Correctional Officer; W. HOBBS, Correctional Officer, Defendants - Appellees. Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Norfolk. Mark S. Davis, Chief District Judge. (2:17-cv-00321-MSD-DEM) Submitted: December 20, 2018 Decided: December 27, 2018 Before DIAZ and RICHARDSON, Circuit Judges, and TRAXLER, Senior Circuit Judge. Affirmed by unpublished per curiam opinion. Antonio Sheppard Williams, Appellant Pro Se. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. PER CURIAM: Antonio Sheppard Williams appeals the district court’s order granting Defendants’ motion for summary judgment because Williams failed to exhaust his administrative remedies. On appeal, we confine our review to the issues raised in the Appellant’s brief. See 4th Cir. R. 34(b). Because Williams’ informal brief does not challenge the basis for the district court’s disposition, Williams 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 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 2
