United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.

Tyrone HURT, Plaintiff - Appellant, v. U.S. CONSTITUTION; Rev. William T. Booker; All National Clergy; United States of America; Donald Trump, President of the United States; The White House; United States Senate; United States House of Representatives; International Criminal Courts; International Peace Court, Defendants - Appellees.

No. 17-2008

Decided: September 20, 2018

Before KEENAN and THACKER, Circuit Judges, and HAMILTON, Senior Circuit Judge. Tyrone Hurt, Appellant Pro Se.

We previously dismissed this appeal for failure to prosecute, 4th Cir. Local R. 45. Tyrone Hurt moves to reopen the appeal. We grant the motion to reopen.

Turning to the merits of the appeal, Hurt appeals the district court's order dismissing his civil complaint. We have reviewed the record and find that this appeal is frivolous. Accordingly, we deny leave to proceed in forma pauperis and dismiss the appeal for the reasons stated by the district court. Hurt v. U.S. Constitution, No. 5:17-mc-00029-H (E.D.N.C. Aug. 21, 2017). The motions for appointment of counsel and for initial hearing en banc are denied. 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.



Dismissed by unpublished per curiam opinion. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
