Pg: 2 of 2
Ken Gryder appeals the district court’s order dismissing Gryder’s civil claims
against Defendants after reviewing the complaint pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915 (2012).
On appeal, we confine our review to the issues raised in the Appellant’s brief. See 4th
Cir. R. 34(b). Because Gryder’s informal brief does not challenge the basis for the
district court’s dispositive rulings, Gryder has forfeited appellate review of the district
court’s order. See Williams v. Giant Food Inc., 370 F.3d 423, 430 n.4 (4th Cir. 2004);
see also Edwards v. City of Goldsboro, 178 F.3d 231, 241 n.6 (4th Cir. 1999) (failure to
raise issue in opening brief constitutes abandonment of that issue).
although we grant Gryder’s application to proceed in forma pauperis, we affirm the
district court’s order. See Gryder v. HCL America, No. 1:17-cv-00246-LMB-JFA (E.D.
Va. Mar. 8, 2017).
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.
