Margaret REAVES, Plaintiff-Appellant, v. OCWEN LOAN SERVICING, LLC; Litton Loan Servicing; Popular Financial; The Bank of New York Mellon, Defendants-Appellees.
Decided: January 22, 2019
Before WILKINSON and DUNCAN, Circuit Judges, and HAMILTON, Senior Circuit Judge.
Margaret Reaves, Appellant Pro Se. Dennis Kyle Deak, TROUTMAN SANDERS, LLP, Raleigh, North Carolina, for Appellees.
Margaret Reaves appeals the district court's order dismissing her amended complaint with prejudice for failure to timely serve Defendants. We have reviewed the record and find no abuse of discretion in the district court's decision to dismiss the complaint. Accordingly, we affirm for the reasons stated by the district court. Reaves v. Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC, No. 5:16-cv-00186-FL (E.D.N.C. July 16, 2018). However, pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(m), we modify the district court's order to a dismissal without prejudice. 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.
