James L. Martin, appellant pro se.
James Andrew Sullivan, Sullivan & Talbott, Larry Alan Ceppos, Armstrong, Donohue & Ceppos, Chartered, for appellees.
Before DONALD RUSSELL, WIDENER, and MURNAGHAN, Circuit Judges.
James L. Martin seeks to appeal from the district court order compelling discovery in aid of the enforcement of its judgment.
This Court has jurisdiction to review final decisions of the district court. 28 U.S.C. § 1291. The grant of a post-judgment discovery order is interlocutory and not appealable. Rouse Const. Int'l v. Rouse Constr. Corp., 680 F.2d 743, 746 (11th Cir. 1982). We therefore lack jurisdiction to consider this appeal.
We dispense with oral argument because the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively. We deny the appellees' request for costs and fees under 28 U.S.C. § 1912 and Fed. R. App. P. 38.
