US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 989 F.2d 493 (4th Cir. 1993) Submitted: March 1, 1993Decided: March 25, 1993

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Alexandria. T. S. Ellis, III, District Judge. (CA-92-801-AM)

Anthony Lawrence McLean, Appellant Pro Se.

E.D. Va.


Before WIDENER, HAMILTON, and WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges.



Anthony Lawrence McLean appeals the district court's order dismissing his claims against Value Added Communications.*  We dismiss the appeal for lack of jurisdiction because the order is not appealable. This Court may exercise jurisdiction only over final orders, 28 U.S.C. § 1291 (1988), and certain interlocutory and collateral orders, 28 U.S.C. § 1292 (1988); Fed. R. Civ. P. 54(b); Cohen v. Beneficial Indus. Loan Corp., 337 U.S. 541 (1949). The order here appealed is neither a final order nor an appealable interlocutory or collateral order.

We dismiss the appeal as interlocutory. 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.



The district court's order refers to Value Added Communications. Actually, McLean sued Paul Brassard of Value Added Communications. The Court did not dismiss the claims against the remaining defendant, Richard G. Kiekbusch, Superintendent of the Prince William-Manassas Regional Detention Center
