Submitted Jan. 20, 1994. Decided Feb. 2, 1994
Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, at Baltimore. William M. Nickerson, District Judge. (CA-92-3326-WN)
Michael James Carroll, appellant pro se.
Alice G. Pinderhughes, Law Office of Alice G. Pinderhughes, Baltimore, MD, for appellees.
Before WIDENER, WILKINS, and HAMILTON, Circuit Judges.
Appellant filed a notice of appeal. We dismiss the appeal for lack of jurisdiction because there is no appealable order. 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 Industrial Loan Corp., 337 U.S. 541 (1949). Here there 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.
We deny Appellees' motions for dismissal/summary judgment
