Steve C. CHADWICK, Plaintiff-Appellant, v. Richard J. GRAHAM, Jr., Defendant-Appellee.
Decided: September 27, 2019
Before WYNN and HARRIS, Circuit Judges, and TRAXLER, Senior Circuit Judge.
Steve Carl Chadwick, Appellant Pro Se.
Steve C. Chadwick seeks to appeal the district court's order dismissing his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (2012) complaint. Chadwick argued in his notice of appeal, and the record suggests, that he did not receive timely notice of the entry of the district court's dismissal order. See Fed. R. App. P. 4(a)(6)(A). Because the 30-day appeal period is jurisdictional, Bowles v. Russell, 551 U.S. 205, 214, 127 S.Ct. 2360, 168 L.Ed.2d 96 (2007), we remand the case for the limited purpose of allowing the district court to determine whether to reopen the time to file an appeal pursuant to Fed. R. App. P. 4(a)(6). The record, as supplemented, will then be returned to this court for further consideration.
Remanded by unpublished per curiam opinion.
