Unpublished Dispositionunited States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. Raymond Edward Gill, Defendant-appellant, 914 F.2d 249 (4th Cir. 1990)Annotate this Case
Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, at Baltimore. Walter E. Black, Jr., District Judge. (C/A No. 89-949-B; CR-86-9-B)
Raymond Edward Gill, appellant pro se.
Catherine Curtis Blake, Office of the United States Attorney, Baltimore, Md., for appellee.
Before PHILLIPS, CHAPMAN and WILKINS, Circuit Judges.
Raymond Edward Gill noted this appeal outside the 60-day appeal period established by Fed. R. App. P. 4(a) (1), and failed to move for an extension of the appeal period within the additional 30-day period provided by Fed. R. App. P. 4(a) (5). The time periods established by Fed. R. App. P. 4 are "mandatory and jurisdictional." Browder v. Director, Dep't of Corrections, 434 U.S. 257, 264 (1978) (quoting United States v. Robinson, 361 U.S. 220, 229 (1960)). Appellant's failure to note a timely appeal or obtain an extension of the appeal period deprives this Court of jurisdiction to consider this case. We therefore dismiss the appeal. We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the Court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
