UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff-Appellee, v. Richard L. BRYANT, a/k/a Pumpkin, a/k/a Rock, Defendant-Appellant.
Decided: October 29, 2018
Before NIEMEYER, DUNCAN, and WYNN, Circuit Judges.
Richard L. Bryant, Appellant Pro Se.
Richard L. Bryant appeals the district court's order construing his Fed. R. Civ. P. 60(b) motion as an unauthorized successive 28 U.S.C. § 2255 (2012) motion and dismissing it for lack of jurisdiction. We have reviewed the record and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we deny a certificate of appealability as unnecessary and affirm. See United States v. McRae, 793 F.3d 392, 400 (4th Cir. 2015) (“[W]e need not issue a COA before determining whether the district court erred in dismissing [a] purported Rule 60(b) motion as an unauthorized successive habeas petition.”). 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Affirmed by unpublished per curiam opinion.
Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
