Indigo Ocean Rose KRAIM, Plaintiff-Appellant, v. COLUMBIA POLICE DEPARTMENT; Columbia Housing Authority; Richland County Sheriff Dept.; Richland Springs, Defendants-Appellees.
Decided: February 25, 2019
Before GREGORY, Chief Judge, and AGEE and DIAZ, Circuit Judges.
Indigo Ocean Rose Kraim, Appellant Pro Se.
Indigo Ocean Rose Kraim seeks to appeal the district court's order dismissing her civil complaint without prejudice. This court may exercise jurisdiction only over final orders, 28 U.S.C. § 1291 (2012), and certain interlocutory and collateral orders, 28 U.S.C. § 1292 (2012); Fed. R. Civ. P. 54(b); Cohen v. Beneficial Indus. Loan Corp., 337 U.S. 541, 545-46, 69 S.Ct. 1221, 93 L.Ed. 1528 (1949). Because Kraim could potentially amend her complaint to allege a proper basis to support federal jurisdiction, the order she seeks to appeal is neither a final order nor an appealable interlocutory or collateral order. Domino Sugar Corp. v. Sugar Workers Local Union 392, 10 F.3d 1064, 1067 (4th Cir. 1993) (alteration and internal quotation marks omitted); accord Goode v. Cent. Va. Legal Aid Soc'y, 807 F.3d 619, 626-27 (4th Cir. 2015). Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal for lack of jurisdiction and remand the case to the district court with instructions to allow Kraim to file an amended complaint. See Goode, 807 F.3d at 630. 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.
