United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.

IN RE: Starsha SEWELL, Appellant.

No. 20-2304

Decided: April 26, 2021

Before GREGORY, Chief Judge, AGEE, Circuit Judge, and TRAXLER, Senior Circuit Judge. Starsha M. Sewell, Appellant Pro Se.

Starsha Sewell appeals the district court's order returning certain pleadings to her pursuant to a previously imposed prefiling injunction.* On appeal, we confine our review to the issues raised in the informal brief. See 4th Cir. R. 34(b). Because Sewell's informal brief and various supplements do not challenge the district court's rationale, she 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 order. We deny Sewell's motion for enforcement. 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.   To the extent that Sewell contests the prefiling injunction, we note that this court previously affirmed that order. See In re Sewell, 732 F. App'x 221 (4th Cir. 2018).
