United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.

LAWRENCE DONNELL LEWIS, Petitioner – Appellant, v. UNKNOWN, Respondent - Appellee.

No. 16-6356

Decided: July 22, 2016

Before SHEDD, AGEE, and WYNN, Circuit Judges. Lawrence Donnell Lewis, Appellant Pro Se.

Lawrence Donnell Lewis seeks to appeal the district court's order dismissing his civil complaint. This court may exercise jurisdiction only over final orders, 28 U.S.C. § 1291 (2012), and certain interlocutory and collateral orders, 28 U.S.C. § 1292 (2012); Fed. R. Civ. P. 54(b); Cohen v. Beneficial Indus. Loan Corp., 337 U.S. 541, 545-47 (1949). Because the deficiencies identified by the district court were remedied by the filing of a consent form, we conclude that the order Lewis seeks to appeal is neither a final order nor an appealable interlocutory or collateral order. Goode v. Cent. Va. Legal Aid Soc'y, Inc., 807 F.3d 619, 623 (4th Cir. 2015); Domino Sugar Corp. v. Sugar Workers Local Union 392, 10 F.3d 1064, 1066-67 (4th Cir. 1993).

Accordingly, we 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
