Decided: July 19, 2019
Before MOTZ, WYNN, and DIAZ, Circuit Judges.
Robert Louis Garrett, Jr., Appellant Pro Se.
Robert Garrett, Jr., appeals the district court's order accepting the recommendations of the magistrate judge and denying his motions for a preliminary injunction and default judgment in this action filed pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (2012). 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). The denial of Garrett's motion for a preliminary injunction is an appealable interlocutory order. 28 U.S.C. § 1292(a)(1). We have reviewed the record and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm the denial of the preliminary injunction for the reasons stated by the district court. Garrett v. Richardson, No. 0:18-cv-01309-CMC-PJG, 2019 WL 1567737 (D.S.C. Apr. 11, 2019). The order denying Garrett's motions for default judgment is neither a final order nor an appealable interlocutory or collateral order. Accordingly, we dismiss this portion of the appeal for lack of jurisdiction. We deny Garrett's motion for stay and his request to consolidate this appeal with No. 19-6614. 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.
