Marquhne Benjamin JOHNSON, Correctional Officer; Cedric Graham, Correctional Officer; Jackie Yang, Registered Nurse; Kariem Lane, Correctional Officer; Kevin White, Correctional Lieutenant; Alfred Williams, Disciplinary Hearing Officer; Susan Morrison, Correctional Officer, Defendants-Appellees, Jhon Herring, Correctional Superintendent; William Horne, Correctional Housing Unit Manager, Defendants.
Decided: January 24, 2020
Before WILKINSON, KEENAN, and THACKER, Circuit Judges.
James C. McNeill, Appellant Pro Se.
James C. McNeill seeks to appeal the district court's order denying his request for production of documents and his motions to compel discovery. This court may exercise jurisdiction only over final orders, 28 U.S.C. § 1291 (2018), and certain interlocutory and collateral orders, 28 U.S.C. § 1292 (2018); 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 order McNeill seeks to appeal is neither a final order nor an appealable interlocutory or collateral order. 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Dismissed by unpublished per curiam opinion.
