Derrick ALLEN, Plaintiff - Appellant, v. Phillip JORDAN, Human Relations Manager; Juanita English, Management Assistant; Lenin Martinez-Gallo, Human Relation Specialist, Defendants - Appellees.
Decided: April 17, 2020
Before WILKINSON, QUATTLEBAUM, and RUSHING, Circuit Judges.
Derrick Michael Allen, Sr., Appellant Pro Se.
Derrick Allen seeks to appeal the magistrate judge’s memorandum recommending that the district court dismiss Allen’s complaint. 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 Allen seeks to appeal is neither a final order nor an appealable interlocutory or collateral order. Accordingly, we deny Allen’s motion to appoint counsel 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Dismissed by unpublished per curiam opinion.
Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
