Terry D. Quattlebaum filed this action—his second—asserting several claims
arising out of the sale of his mortgage and foreclosure on his home. The Defendants
moved to dismiss on res judicata grounds. Quattlebaum sought to amend his complaint,
but the district court denied the motions to amend and dismissed the complaint as barred
by res judicata. Quattlebaum appeals the district court’s order denying his motions to
amend his complaint as futile. We review de novo a district court’s denial of a motion to
amend on futility grounds. United States ex rel. Ahumada v. NISH, 756 F.3d 268, 274
(4th Cir. 2014). As the district court concluded, res judicata would bar litigation of the
claims Quattlebaum sought to add. See Pueschel v. United States, 369 F.3d 345, 354-55
(4th Cir. 2004) (providing elements of res judicata). Accordingly, we affirm the district
court’s ruling. 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.
