UNPUBLISHED UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT No. 18-7332 DANIEL ERIC COBBLE, Petitioner - Appellant, v. KENNY ATKINSON; MATTHEW G. WHITAKER; US BUREAU OF PRISONS; ATTORNEY GENERAL OF GEORGIA; DISTRICT ATTORNEY, BALDWIN COUNTY GEORGIA; DISTRICT ATTORNEY, COBB COUNTY GEORGIA; DISTRICT ATTORNEY, CHEROKEE COUNTY GEORGIA; US MARSHALS; GEORGIA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS; DISTRICT ATTORNEY, WILCOX COUNTY GEORGIA; NC ATTORNEY GENERAL, Respondents - Appellees. Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina, at Raleigh. James C. Dever III, District Judge. (5:17-hc-02153-D) 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 Affirmed by unpublished per curiam opinion. Daniel Eric Cobble, Appellant Pro Se. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. PER CURIAM: Daniel Eric Cobble appeals the district court’s order dismissing his 28 U.S.C. § 2241 (2012) petition. On appeal, we confine our review to the issues raised in the Appellant’s brief. See 4th Cir. R. 34(b). Because Cobble’s informal brief does not challenge the basis for the district court’s disposition, Cobble 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 deny Cobble’s motion for reconsideration of our order substituting a party. 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
