JOHNSON v. PRISON MEDICAL PROVIDER FOR VDOC (2020)
United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.
Fred L. JOHNSON, Plaintiff - Appellant, v. PRISON MEDICAL PROVIDER FOR VDOC; Niraj V. Kelore, Orthopedic; Mohammad Suddiqui, Doctor; Vincent Gore, Doctor, Defendants - Appellees.
Decided: July 23, 2020
Before AGEE, DIAZ, and HARRIS, Circuit Judges.
Fred Lee Johnson, Appellant Pro Se. Matthew Devins Joss, HERBERT & SATTERWHITE PC, Richmond, Virginia; Grace Morse-McNelis, SANDS ANDERSON, PC, Richmond, Virginia, for Appellees.
Fred Lee Johnson appeals the district court's order dismissing his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (2018) complaint under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)(B) (2018).* 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. Johnson v. Prison Med. Provider, No. 3:17-cv-00339-JAG-RCY, 2019 WL 3756466 (E.D. Va. Aug. 8, 2019). We deny Johnson's motion for default 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.
FOOTNOTE. Although the district court dismissed Johnson's claims without prejudice, we have jurisdiction over this appeal. See Bing v. Brivo Sys., LLC, 959 F.3d 605, 615 (4th Cir. 2020).
Affirmed by unpublished per curiam opinion.
