Mohammed N. JILANI, Plaintiff - Appellant, v. Blair WILLIAMS; Larry Arellano; S. Thompson, Officer, Defendants - Appellees.
Decided: May 22, 2020
Before NIEMEYER, HARRIS, and RICHARDSON, Circuit Judges.
Mohammed Nasser Jilani, Appellant Pro Se. Jonathan Porter Babb, Sr., Special Deputy Attorney General, Kathryn Hicks Shields, Assistant Attorney General, NORTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, Raleigh, North Carolina; John Thomas Crook, BAILEY & DIXON, Raleigh, North Carolina; Rodney Earl Pettey, Brian Michael Williams, YATES, MCLAMB & WEYHER, LLP, Raleigh, North Carolina, for Appellees.
Mohammed N. Jilani appeals the district court's orders denying relief in his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (2018) action. On appeal, we confine our review to the issues raised in the Appellant's brief. See 4th Cir. R. 34(b). Because Jilani does not present an argument, Jilani has forfeited appellate review of the district court's orders. 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.”). In any event, we have reviewed the record and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm for the reasons stated by the district court. Jilani v. Freeman, No. 5:17-ct-03150-BO (E.D.N.C. Aug. 6, 2018; May 16, 2019; Jan. 24, 2020). 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.
