Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Richmond. Richard L. Williams, District Judge. (CA-91-430A-R)
Lamar Perryman, Appellant Pro Se.
Before SPROUSE and WILKINS, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.
Lamar Perryman filed suit under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1988) and sought leave to proceed in forma pauperis.* Leave to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal is granted. The district court assessed a partial filing fee in accordance with Evans v. Croom, 650 F.2d 521 (4th Cir. 1981), cert. denied, 454 U.S. 1153 (1982). Perryman did not pay the assessed fee and instead filed this appeal. This appeal is properly before us. Roberts v. United States, 339 U.S. 844, 845 (1950). We find that the district court did not abuse its discretion in assessing the partial fee and affirm the district court's order. We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented and argument would not aid the decisional process.
