Appeal: 17-1953 Doc: 16 Filed: 10/23/2017 Pg: 1 of 2 UNPUBLISHED UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT No. 17-1953 STEVEN ROLLAKANTI, Plaintiff - Appellant, v. HOLY CROSS HOSPITAL, Defendant - Appellee, and WILLIAM FEDERICK; ANDRENE TOWSEN; JOHNY NILES, Defendants. Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, at Greenbelt. Paula Xinis, District Judge. (8:16-cv-02914-PX) Submitted: October 19, 2017 Decided: October 23, 2017 Before NIEMEYER, MOTZ, and KING, Circuit Judges. Dismissed by unpublished per curiam opinion. Steven Rollakanti, Appellant Pro Se. Robert R. Niccolini, OGLETREE DEAKINS NASH SMOAK & STEWART, PC, Washington, D.C., for Appellee. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. Appeal: 17-1953 Doc: 16 Filed: 10/23/2017 Pg: 2 of 2 PER CURIAM: Steven Rollakanti appeals the district court’s order denying his motion for an extension of time in which to file an amended complaint after the court had dismissed the complaint in part without prejudice. On appeal, we confine our review to the issues raised in the Appellant’s brief. See 4th Cir. R. 34(b). Because Rollakanti’s informal brief does not challenge the basis for the district court’s disposition, Rollakanti 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 deny leave to proceed in forma pauperis and dismiss the appeal. 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. DISMISSED 2
