Eva Patrick Verner, Petitioner-appellant, v. Margaret C. Hambrick, Warden, Respondent-appellee, 948 F.2d 1291 (6th Cir. 1991)Annotate this Case
Nov. 25, 1991
Before KENNEDY and BOGGS, Circuit Judges, and LIVELY, Senior Circuit Judge.
This matter has been referred to a panel of the court. A review of the documents before the court indicates that petitioner appealed from the order entered September 5, 1991, dismissing her motion for resentencing and referring her request for an adjustment of credit for time served to the magistrate judge for further consideration.
This court lacks jurisdiction in this appeal. Absent Fed. R. Civ. P. 54(b) certification, an order disposing of fewer than all the claims or parties involved in the action is not appealable. Liberty Mut. Ins. Co. v. Wetzel, 424 U.S. 737, 742-45 (1976); Solomon v. Aetna Life Ins. Co., 782 F.2d 58, 59-60 (6th Cir. 1986). No Rule 54(b) certification was made in the instant case. The final decision of the district court has not been entered during the pendency of this appeal; therefore, this court lacks jurisdiction. See Gillis v. United States Dep't of HHS, 759 F.2d 565, 569 (6th Cir. 1985).
Accordingly, it is ORDERED that the appeal be, and it hereby is, dismissed for lack of jurisdiction. Rule 8(a), Rules of the Sixth Circuit.
