Ronnie WILLIAMS, Plaintiff-Appellant, v. WAL MART STORES, c/o Mendelson, GSO 2301 McGee St, 8th Floor, Kansas City, MO 64108, Defendant-Appellee, David Zilenski, Store Manager; William Joey, Shift Lead Manager; Delinda Butler, Shift Lead Manager; Michael Adams, Asst Manager No. 4487, Defendants.
Decided: December 03, 2018
Before DUNCAN and KEENAN, Circuit Judges, and TRAXLER, Senior Circuit Judge.
Ronnie Williams, Appellant Pro Se. Molly Mitchell Shah, LITTLER MENDELSON PC, Charlotte, North Carolina, for Appellee.
Ronnie Williams appeals the district court's order adopting the magistrate judge's recommendation and dismissing Williams’ employment discrimination suit for failure to participate in discovery. 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.
