Phillip S. DANIEL, Plaintiff - Appellant, v. UNKNOWN, Defendant - Appellee.
Decided: May 21, 2020
Before NIEMEYER, HARRIS, and RICHARDSON, Circuit Judges.
Phillip S. Daniel, Appellant Pro Se.
Phillip S. Daniel appeals the district court's order dismissing his complaint without prejudice for his failure to comply with the court's order to pay the initial partial filing fee. On appeal, we confine our review to the issues raised in the informal brief. See 4th Cir. R. 34(b). Because Daniel's informal brief does not challenge the basis for the district court's disposition, he 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 affirm the district court's judgment. 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.
