Defendants - Appellees,
J. DRAPER, Dental Asst. at Lunenburg Correctional Center, individually and in

Submitted: March 23, 2021 Decided: March 26, 2021
Before THACKER, QUATTLEBAUM, and RUSHING, Circuit Judges.
Affirmed by unpublished per curiam opinion.
Kennarda Bugg, Appellant Pro Se. Matthew E. Kelley, FRITH, ANDERSON & PEAKE,
PC, Roanoke, Virginia; Douglas Penner, Christa Theodora Pitzen, GOODMAN ALLEN
DONNELLY PLLC, Norfolk, Virginia, for Appellees.
Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
Kennarda Bugg appeals the district court’s order denying relief on his 42 U.S.C.
§ 1983 complaint. On appeal, we confine our review to the issues raised in the informal
brief. See 4th Cir. R. 34(b). Because Bugg’s informal brief does not challenge the bases
for the district court’s disposition, he 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.”). 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.
