Appeal: 17-6725 Doc: 12 Filed: 08/22/2017 Pg: 1 of 2 UNPUBLISHED UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT No. 17-6725 KENNY SOWELL, Plaintiff - Appellant, v. WILLIAM BRIGHTHARP, Defendant - Appellee, and JOSEPH MCFADDEN; JAMES BLACKWELL; CAPTAIN MCBRIDE, Defendants. Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina, at Orangeburg. David C. Norton, District Judge. (5:16-cv-01500-DCN) Submitted: August 17, 2017 Decided: August 22, 2017 Before KEENAN, THACKER, and HARRIS, Circuit Judges. Affirmed by unpublished per curiam opinion. Kenny Sowell, Appellant Pro Se. Kevin Michael DeAntonio, Christopher Thomas Dorsel, Sandra J. Senn, SENN LEGAL, LLC, Charleston, South Carolina, for Appellee. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. Appeal: 17-6725 Doc: 12 Filed: 08/22/2017 Pg: 2 of 2 PER CURIAM: Kenny Sowell appeals the district court’s order accepting the recommendation of the magistrate judge and denying relief on his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (2012) complaint. On appeal, we confine our review to the issues raised in the appellant’s brief. See 4th Cir. R. 34(b). Because Sowell’s informal brief does not challenge the basis for the district court’s disposition, Sowell 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 judgment of the district court. 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 2
