KARIUKI v. NORTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF INSURANCE (2020)
United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.
George KARIUKI, Plaintiff - Appellant, v. NORTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF INSURANCE, Defendant - Appellee.
Decided: March 05, 2020
Before GREGORY, Chief Judge, and DIAZ and QUATTLEBAUM, Circuit Judges.
George Kariuki, Appellant Pro Se. Thomas James Felling, Assistant Attorney General, Daniel Snipes Johnson, NORTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, Raleigh, North Carolina, for Appellee.
George Kariuki seeks to appeal the district court's order granting Defendant's partial motion to dismiss, denying Kariuki's motions to seal, and denying his motions to amend. 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 Kariuki 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Dismissed by unpublished per curiam opinion.
