Casey Rafael TYLER, Plaintiff-Appellant, v. Katy POOLE, Individual and official capacity; William Bullard, Individual and official capacity; Ronald Covington, Captain, Individual capacity; Carol Tores, Captain, Individual capacity; Jerry Ingram, Jr., Unit Manager, Individual capacity; Thorne Locklear, Correctional officer, individual capacity, Defendants-Appellees.
Decided: September 27, 2019
Before WYNN and HARRIS, Circuit Judges, and TRAXLER, Senior Circuit Judge.
Casey Rafael Tyler, Appellant Pro Se.
Casey Rafael Tyler seeks to appeal the magistrate judge’s text orders denying Tyler’s motion for appointment of counsel and granting Appellees’ motion for an extension of time to file dispositive motions in Tyler’s 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (2012) action. 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 Tyler seeks to appeal are neither final orders nor appealable interlocutory or collateral orders. Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal for lack of jurisdiction. 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Dismissed by unpublished per curiam opinion.
Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
