United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.

Don W. MCKINNEY, Plaintiff - Appellant, v. Commonwealth of VIRGINIA; Circuit Court of Wise County; United States District Court, Defendants - Appellees.

No. 19-1105

Decided: May 28, 2019

Before KING and RICHARDSON, Circuit Judges, and SHEDD, Senior Circuit Judge. Don W. McKinney, Appellant Pro Se.

Don W. McKinney appeals the district court's orders dismissing his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (2012) action pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)(B) (2012) and imposing a prefiling injunction. On appeal, we confine our review to the issues raised in the Appellant's brief. See 4th Cir. R. 34(b). Because McKinney's informal brief does not challenge the basis for the district court's disposition, McKinney has forfeited appellate review of the court's orders. See Jackson v. Lightsey, 775 F.3d 170, 175 (4th Cir. 2014). Accordingly, we affirm the district court's orders. 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.
