John Sims, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Harold Falk, et al., Defendants-appellees, 877 F.2d 31 (9th Cir. 1989)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 877 F.2d 31 (9th Cir. 1989) Submitted June 1, 1989. Decided June 9, 1989

John Sims, Aiea, Hawaii, pro se.

Thomas D. Farrell, Deputy Atty. Gen., Honolulu, Hawaii, for defendants-appellees.

Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Hawaii.

Before BROWNING, THOMPSON and LEAVY, Circuit Judges.


Appellant appeals from the district court's order of February 28, 1989, denying his pretrial motion to hold appellees in contempt. Such an order is not a final order. See 28 U.S.C. § 1291; Sportmart, Inc. v. Wolverine World Wide, Inc., 601 F.2d 313, 316 (7th Cir. 1979). Therefore, the court, on its own motion, dismisses this appeal for lack of jurisdiction. This appeal is dismissed.
