United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.

Jaron BRICE, Petitioner-Appellant, v. J. Ray ORMOND, Warden, Respondent-Appellee.

No. 18-7485

Decided: March 19, 2019

Before WYNN and RICHARDSON, Circuit Judges, and TRAXLER, Senior Circuit Judge. Jaron Brice, Appellant Pro Se.

Jaron Brice seeks to appeal the district court's order ordering him to notify the court how he sought to proceed with his 28 U.S.C. § 2241 (2012) petition. 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, 545-46, 69 S.Ct. 1221, 93 L.Ed. 1528 (1949). The order Brice seeks to appeal is neither a final order nor an appealable interlocutory or collateral order. Finding no basis for appellate jurisdiction, we deny Brice's motion for bail or release, deny leave to proceed in forma pauperis, and dismiss the appeal. 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.
