Robert James Walton, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Janet Reno, et al., Defendants-appellees, 15 F.3d 1095 (9th Cir. 1993)Annotate this Case
Submitted Dec. 6, 1993. *Decided Dec. 20, 1993
Before: SNEED, NOONAN, and TROTT, Circuit Judges.
Federal prisoner Robert James Walton appeals pro se the district court's dismissal with leave to amend of his complaint brought pursuant to Bivens v. Six Unknown Named Agents of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, 403 U.S. 388 (1971) alleging that prison officials improperly placed Walton in administrative segregation and confiscated certain religious materials. We dismiss the appeal for lack of jurisdiction.
A district court order dismissing a complaint with leave to amend is not a final appealable order. Hoohuli v. Ariyoshi, 741 F.2d 1169, 1171 n. 1 (9th Cir. 1984); Proud v. United States, 704 F.2d 1099, 1100 (9th Cir. 1983) (per curiam).
Here, the district court granted Walton in forma pauperis status but dismissed his complaint with leave to amend because the complaint did not comply with the court's local rules, and because Walton submitted a deficient declaration in support of his request to proceed in forma pauperis. The district court granted Walton thirty days leave to amend and cure these deficiencies. Walton instead appealed the district court's order. This order, however, is not appealable. See Proud, 704 F.2d at 1100. Accordingly, we dismiss Walton's appeal for lack of jurisdiction.
