BRANDON WILLIAMS v. STATE OF MARYLAND, Office of the Governor; BALTIMORE COUNTY
OFFICE OF CHILD SUPPORT ENFORCEMENT
Case Number: 19-2249
Judge: Before WYNN, DIAZ, and RICHARDSON, Circuit Judges.
Affirmed by unpublished per curiam opinion.
Court: UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS
FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT
Richmond, Virginia - Child Support lawyer represented Plaintiff - Appellant with appealing the district court’s order dismissing his complaint raising several challenges to the garnishment of his wages for enforcement of a Maryland child support order.
On appeal, we confine our review to the issues raised in the Appellant’s
brief. See 4th Cir. R. 34(b). Because Williams’ informal brief does not challenge the bases
for the district court’s disposition, Williams has forfeited appellate review of the court’s
order. See Jackson v. Lightsey, 775 F.3d 170, 177 (4th Cir. 2014) (“The informal brief is
an important document; under Fourth Circuit rules, our review is limited to issues
preserved in that brief.”).
Outcome: Accordingly, we affirm the district court’s judgment. 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.
