Appeal from the United States District Court
for the Eastern District of Texas
USDC No. 1:16-CV-154
Before JOLLY, OWEN, and HAYNES, Circuit Judges.
PER CURIAM: *
Vauda Virgle Shipp, Jr., federal prisoner # 09724-062, appeals the
district court’s dismissal without prejudice of his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 complaint
for failing to comply with the court’s order to pay the initial partial filing fee.
We review a district court’s dismissal of an action for failure to prosecute
or for failure to comply with any court order for abuse of discretion.
Pursuant to 5TH CIR. R. 47.5, the court has determined that this opinion should not
be published and is not precedent except under the limited circumstances set forth in 5TH
CIR. R. 47.5.4.
Date Filed: 11/17/2017
McCullough v. Lynaugh, 835 F.2d 1126, 1127 (5th Cir. 1988). Shipp does not
challenge the district court’s conclusion that he failed to comply with the
court’s order to pay the initial filing fee. By failing to brief any argument
challenging the district court’s reason for dismissal, Shipp has abandoned the
issue. See Yohey v. Collins, 985 F.2d 222, 224-25 (5th Cir. 1993); Brinkmann
v. Dallas County Deputy Sheriff Abner, 813 F.2d 744, 748 (5th Cir. 1987). Thus,
he has not shown that the district court abused its discretion in dismissing his
action without prejudice. See McCullough, 835 F.2d at 1127.
The judgment of the district court is AFFIRMED. Shipp’s motion for
leave to file a supplemental brief is DENIED.
