HEMINGWAY v. COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY (2018)
United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.
Robert HEMINGWAY, Plaintiff-Appellant, v. COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY, Defendant-Appellee.
Decided: December 20, 2018
Before AGEE, THACKER, and HARRIS, Circuit Judges.
Robert Hemingway, Appellant Pro Se. Dennis Carl Barghaan, Jr., Assistant United States Attorney, OFFICE OF THE UNITED STATES ATTORNEY, Alexandria, Virginia, for Appellee.
Robert Hemingway appeals the district court's order dismissing without prejudice his removed civil suit in which Hemingway sought review of the Social Security Administration's denial of his application for disability insurance benefits. On appeal, we confine our review to the issues raised in the Appellant's brief. See 4th Cir. R. 34(b). Because Hemingway's informal brief does not challenge the district court's jurisdictional disposition, Hemingway has forfeited appellate review of the court's order. See Williams v. Giant Food Inc., 370 F.3d 423, 430 n.4 (4th Cir. 2004). Accordingly, we affirm the district court's judgment. We grant Hemingway leave to proceed on appeal in forma pauperis. 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.
