CRAYTON v. New York Life Insurance Company, Plaintiff. (2019)
United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.
Athalia CRAYTON, Defendant - Appellant, v. Teneeda FERRON, Defendant - Appellee, New York Life Insurance Company, Plaintiff.
Decided: December 30, 2019
Before AGEE and QUATTLEBAUM, Circuit Judges, and SHEDD, Senior Circuit Judge.
Athalia Crayton, Appellant Pro Se. Norman B. Smith, SMITH, JAMES, ROWLETT & COHEN, LLP, Greensboro, North Carolina, for Appellee.
Athalia Crayton appeals the district court's orders and judgment concluding that her sister was the proper beneficiary of the proceeds from her mother's life insurance policy, and denying Crayton's motion for amended and additional findings of fact under Fed. R. Civ. P. 52(b), or alternatively a new trial under Fed. R. Civ. P. 59(a), (b). We have reviewed the record and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm for the reasons stated by the district court. N.Y. Life Ins. Co. v. Crayton, No. 1:17-cv-00593-TDS-JLW (M.D.N.C. Jan. 15, 2019; June 19, 2019). We also deny Crayton's motion for a transcript at Government expense. 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Affirmed by unpublished per curiam opinion.
