Anthony G. BRYANT, Plaintiff-Appellant, v. U.S. ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS; South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control, SCDHEC; Attorney General of the United States; Charleston County Administrator, Defendants-Appellees.
Decided: February 25, 2019
Before GREGORY, Chief Judge, and AGEE and DIAZ, Circuit Judges.
Anthony G. Bryant, Appellant Pro Se.
Anthony G. Bryant seeks to appeal the district court's order denying his motion to proceed in forma pauperis. We may exercise jurisdiction only over final orders, 28 U.S.C. § 1291 (2012), and certain interlocutory and collateral orders, 28 U.S.C. § 1292 (2012); Fed. R. Civ. P. 54(b); Cohen v. Beneficial Indus. Loan Corp., 337 U.S. 541, 545-46, 69 S.Ct. 1221, 93 L.Ed. 1528 (1949). An order denying a motion to proceed in forma pauperis is an appealable interlocutory order. Roberts v. United States Dist. Ct., 339 U.S. 844, 845, 70 S.Ct. 954, 94 L.Ed. 1326 (1950) (per curiam). We have reviewed the record and find no abuse of discretion. Dillard v. Liberty Loan Corp., 626 F.2d 363, 365 (4th Cir. 1980) (stating standard of review). Accordingly, although we grant leave to proceed in forma pauperis in this court, we affirm for the reasons stated by the district court. Bryant v. U.S. Army Corps of Eng'rs, No. 2:18-cv-03037-MBS-MGB (D.S.C. Nov. 28, 2018). 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Affirmed by unpublished per curiam opinion.
