Reset A A Font size: Print

United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.

Larry Arnold YOUNG, Plaintiff - Appellant, v. T. A. LACY; Perry Richmond; Aaron Young, Defendants - Appellees.

No. 18-7308

Decided: August 26, 2019

Before KING and RICHARDSON, Circuit Judges, and HAMILTON, Senior Circuit Judge. Larry Arnold Young, Appellant Pro Se.

Larry Arnold Young seeks to appeal the district court's order adopting in part the magistrate judge's recommendation and dismissing Young's civil complaint as to some, but not all, Defendants. 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 Young 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Dismissed by unpublished per curiam opinion. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
