IN RE: AvaMaria Marie LADSON, Debtor. AvaMaria Marie Ladson, Debtor - Appellant, v. Santander Consumer USA, Inc., Creditor - Appellee.
Decided: May 21, 2020
Before NIEMEYER, HARRIS, and RICHARDSON, Circuit Judges.
AveMaria Marie Ladson, Appellant Pro Se.
AvaMaria Marie Ladson appeals the district court's order dismissing her appeal from a bankruptcy court order for want of prosecution and failure to comply with court orders. On appeal, we confine our review to the issues raised in the Appellant's brief. See 4th Cir. R. 34(b). Because Ladson's informal brief does not challenge the basis for the district court's disposition, Ladson 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.
