Appeal: 17-1530 Doc: 5 Filed: 08/28/2017 Pg: 1 of 3 UNPUBLISHED UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT No. 17-1530 RONNIE CLARKE, Plaintiff - Appellant, v. CITY OF PETERSBURG; W. HOWARD MYERS, Mayor of the City of Petersburg; WILLIAM JOHNSON, City Manager; LORRAINE ADEEB, Human Resources Director for City; BRIAN TELFAIR, City Attorney for the City, Defendants - Appellees. Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Richmond. Henry E. Hudson, District Judge. (3:15-cv-00470-HEH) Submitted: August 24, 2017 Decided: August 28, 2017 Before SHEDD and DIAZ, Circuit Judges. * Affirmed by unpublished per curiam opinion. Ronnie Clarke, Appellant Pro Se. * (2012). The opinion is filed by a quorum of the panel pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 46(d) Appeal: 17-1530 Doc: 5 Filed: 08/28/2017 Pg: 2 of 3 Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. 2 Appeal: 17-1530 Doc: 5 Filed: 08/28/2017 Pg: 3 of 3 PER CURIAM: Ronnie Clarke appeals the district court’s order dismissing, after a review pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)(B)(ii) (2012), Clarke’s complaint alleging Defendants retaliated against him in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. §§ 2000e to 2000e-17 (2012). On appeal, we confine our review to the issues raised in the Appellant’s brief. See 4th Cir. R. 34(b). Because Clarke’s informal brief does not challenge the basis for the district court’s disposition, Clarke has forfeited appellate review of the court’s order. See Williams v. Giant Food Inc., 370 F.3d 423, 430 n.4 (4th Cir. 2004). Accordingly, we affirm the district court’s order. 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. AFFIRMED 3
