DIPPEL v. SOUTH CAROLINA FARM BUREAU MUTUAL INSURANCE COMPANY (2020)
United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.
Kenneth D. DIPPEL, Plaintiff - Appellant, v. SOUTH CAROLINA FARM BUREAU MUTUAL INSURANCE COMPANY, Defendant - Appellee.
Decided: March 13, 2020
Before KING, KEENAN, and FLOYD, Circuit Judges.
Kenneth D. Dippel, Appellant Pro Se. Stephen Peterson Groves, Sr., BUTLER SNOW, LLP, Charleston, South Carolina, for Appellee.
Kenneth D. Dippel seeks to appeal the district court’s partial grant of Appellee’s motion for summary judgment and various other nondispositive orders. 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 orders Dippel seeks to appeal are neither final orders nor appealable interlocutory or collateral orders. Accordingly, we grant Appellee’s motion to dismiss and dismiss Dippel’s 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.
FOOTNOTE. We also deny each of Dippel’s pending motions as moot.
Dismissed by unpublished per curiam opinion.
Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
