Decided: February 20, 2020
Before MOTZ, HARRIS, and QUATTLEBAUM, Circuit Judges.
James Joseph Owens-El, Appellant Pro Se. Ronald McGlenn Cherry, BONNER KIERNAN TREBACH & CROCIATA LLP, Baltimore, Maryland, for Appellee.
James Joseph Owens-El seeks to appeal the district court's order denying his “emergency motion seeking entervention” [sic]. 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 Owens-El 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Dismissed by unpublished per curiam opinion.
