PLEASANT v. UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF VIRGINIA (2019)
United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.
Jeffrey A. PLEASANT, Petitioner - Appellant, v. UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF VIRGINIA, Richmond Division, Respondent - Appellee.
Decided: July 23, 2019
Before WILKINSON, AGEE, and THACKER, Circuit Judges.
Jeffrey A. Pleasant, Appellant Pro Se.
In November 2018, after receiving a copy of a petition for a writ of mandamus that Jeffrey A. Pleasant filed in this court, the district court erroneously docketed the mandamus petition as a new action. After realizing its mistake, the district court entered an order directing the district court clerk to dismiss the action from its docket. Pleasant now appeals the district court's order.
We have reviewed the record and find no reversible error. Accordingly, although we grant leave to proceed in forma pauperis, we affirm for the reasons stated by the district court. Pleasant v. U.S. Dist. Ct. E. Dist. of Va., No. 3:18-cv-00773-REP-RCY (E.D. Va. Feb. 27, 2019). 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Affirmed by unpublished per curiam opinion.
