Muluneh Mhirate Yadeta appeals the district court’s orders
entering default judgment in favor of the Plaintiffs in this
civil action alleging trademark infringement and other claims.
On appeal, we confine our review to the issues raised in the
See 4th Cir. R. 34(b).
Because Yadeta does
not contest the finding that he engaged in discovery violations,
default judgment against him, he has forfeited appellate review
of that judgment.
Although Yadeta attempts to challenge the amount of the
damages awarded to the Plaintiffs, the magistrate judge, in her
that failure to file timely objections to this recommendation
could waive appellate review of a district court order based
objections to a magistrate judge’s recommendation is necessary
consequences of noncompliance.
Wright v. Collins, 766 F.2d 841,
845-46 (4th Cir. 1985); see also Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140
Yadeta has waived appellate review by failing to timely

receiving proper notice.
Accordingly, although we grant leave to proceed in forma
pauperis, we affirm the judgment of the district court.
Beza Consulting, Inc. v. Yadeta, No. 1:14-cv-00881-AJT-TCB (E.D.
Va. Mar. 27 & July 2, 2015).
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.
