Anthony G. BRYANT, Plaintiff - Appellant, v. US DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION; Federal Bureau of Investigation; Drug Enforcement Administration; Homeland Security Administration; Social Security Administration; US Department of Justice; Charleston Department of Transportation; Internal Revenue Service; Federal Trade Commission, Defendants - Appellees.
Decided: January 27, 2020
Before WYNN, DIAZ, and RICHARDSON, Circuit Judges.
Anthony G. Bryant, Appellant Pro Se.
Anthony G. Bryant seeks to appeal the district court's order requiring him to pay the full filing fee for his civil action. 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 that Bryant seeks to appeal is neither a final order nor an appealable interlocutory or collateral order. Accordingly, we deny leave to proceed in forma pauperis and 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Dismissed by unpublished per curiam opinion.
