Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern

District Judge. (1:13-cv-00387-JCC-JFA)


Submitted:   May 22, 2014                        Decided:    May 28, 2014


Before TRAXLER,   Chief     Judge,   and   HAMILTON   and   DAVIS,   Senior
Circuit Judges.


Affirmed by unpublished per curiam opinion.

                                     3
PER CURIAM:

               Luz Denise Negron-Bennett and her husband, Salim A.

Bennett,       appeal    the    district   court’s    order     dismissing      with

prejudice their 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (2006) action for noncompliance

with the court’s earlier order instructing them to particularize

their complaint.          Here, the plaintiffs failed to particularize

their    inscrutable      complaint,       as   thoroughly     directed    by     the

district court, which also warned them that failure to comply

with its order could result in dismissal under Fed. R. Civ. P.

41(b).     We review a district court’s dismissal under Rule 41(b)

for abuse of discretion.           Ballard v. Carlson, 
882 F.2d 93
, 95–96

(4th    Cir.    1989).     We    have   reviewed     the    record   and   find    no

reversible error.         Accordingly, we affirm for the reasons stated

by the district court.            Negron-Bennett v. McCandless, No. 1:13-

cv-00387-JCC-JFA (E.D. Va. Oct. 8, 2013).                  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
