Artez Rashad WOMACK, Plaintiff-Appellant, v. Carrie M. WARD; BWW Law Group, LLC; Freedom Mortgage, Defendants-Appellees.
Decided: February 28, 2019
Before KING, THACKER, and QUATTLEBAUM, Circuit Judges.
Artez Rashad Womack, Appellant Pro Se. Matthew Daniel Cohen, BWW LAW GROUP, LLC, Rockville, Maryland, for Appellees.
Artez Rashad Womack appeals the district court's order granting Defendants’ motion to dismiss his wrongful foreclosure action. On appeal, we confine our review to the issues raised in the Appellant's brief. See 4th Cir. R. 34(b). Because Womack's informal brief does not challenge the bases for the district court's determination that his pleading was inadequate, Womack 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 grant leave to proceed in forma pauperis and affirm the district court's judgment. We deny Womack's motions to file a designation of record and to add record citations to his informal brief. 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.
