UNGER v. ASTON (2018)

Reset A A Font size: Print

United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.

Robert Allan UNGER, Plaintiff-Appellant, v. Derrick ASTON, Commonwealth Attorney, Defendant-Appellee.

No. 17-7221

Decided: January 23, 2018

Before GREGORY, Chief Judge, and SHEDD and HARRIS, Circuit Judges. Robert Allan Unger, Jr., Appellant Pro Se.

Robert Allan Unger appeals the district court's order dismissing his complaint. On appeal, we confine our review to the issues raised in the Appellant's brief. See 4th Cir. R. 34(b). Because Unger's informal brief does not challenge the basis for the district court's disposition, Unger 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.
