Before: SCHROEDER, D.W. NELSON and THOMPSON, Circuit Judges.


Craig Watson appeals the district court's partial summary judgment for defendant City of Long Beach. We dismiss the appeal for lack of jurisdiction under Fed. R. Civ. P. 54(b).

This court has jurisdiction over final orders of the district court. 28 U.S.C. § 1291.

The record reflects that the partial summary judgment was not certified under Rule 54(b). Accordingly, the appeal is



The panel unanimously finds this case suitable for decision without oral argument. Fed. R. App. P. 34(a); 9th Cir.R. 34-4
