Darrell J. WILLIAMS, Plaintiff - Appellant, v. Bryan STIRLING; Officer Wiggins; Warden Randall Williams, Defendants - Appellees.
Decided: August 05, 2019
Before KING, HARRIS, and RUSHING, Circuit Judges.
Darrell J. Williams, Appellant Pro Se.
Darrell J. Williams seeks to appeal the district court's order affirming the magistrate judge's denial of Williams’ motions to subpoena expert witnesses and to compel discovery. He also seeks to appeal the magistrate judge's order denying his motions to compel discovery and inspection and his motion for relief from judgment. 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 orders Williams seeks to appeal are neither final orders nor appealable interlocutory or collateral orders. Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal for lack of jurisdiction. We deny Williams’ motion to suspend proceedings and 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Dismissed by unpublished per curiam opinion.
