UNPUBLISHED

Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina, at Orangeburg. David C. Norton, District Judge. (5:12-cv-03416-DCN) Before GREGORY, Chief Judge, MOTZ, Circuit Judge, and HAMILTON, Senior Circuit Judge. Dismissed by unpublished per curiam opinion. Dmitry Pronin, Appellant Pro Se. Barbara Murcier Bowens, Assistant United States Attorney, OFFICE OF THE UNITED STATES ATTORNEY, Columbia, South Carolina, for Appellees. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. PER CURIAM:

Dmitry Pronin appeals from the district court's order freezing his prison account. Subsequent to his appeal, Pronin filed a motion to unfreeze his funds in district court. After a hearing on April 24, 2019, the district court entered an order on April 29 noting that Pronin intended to withdraw his motion to unfreeze his funds. Thus, the court denied the motion to unfreeze as moot. In a supplemental brief on appeal, Pronin states that he still wishes to challenge the court's order.

Based on Pronin's representation in district court, we find that Pronin has waived his challenge to the freezing of his prison account. Thus, we dismiss the appeal as moot. However, we note that the dismissal is without prejudice to Pronin's renewal of his motion to unfreeze in district court. 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.

DISMISSED
