Ida M. Green, Plaintiff, v. BWW LAW GROUP LLC (2018)
United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.
Albert GREEN, Jr.; Ephonia M. Green, Plaintiffs-Appellants, Ida M. Green, Plaintiff, v. BWW LAW GROUP, LLC; Carrie M. Ward; Joseph Delozier, Defendants-Appellees.
Decided: December 03, 2018
Before DUNCAN and KEENAN, Circuit Judges, and TRAXLER, Senior Circuit Judge.
Albert Green, Jr., Ephonia M. Green, Appellants Pro Se. Matthew Daniel Cohen, BWW LAW GROUP, LLC, Rockville, Maryland, for Appellees.
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.
