Decided: August 5, 1993
Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, at Baltimore. Frank A. Kaufman, Senior District Judge. (CA-92-2602-K)
Aaron Holsey, Appellant Pro Se.
John Joseph Curran, Jr., Attorney General, Richard M. Kastendieck, Office of the Attorney General of Maryland, Baltimore, Maryland, for Appellees.
Before NIEMEYER, HAMILTON, and WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges.
Aaron Holsey appeals the district court's order denying Holsey's motion to vacate a scheduling order. 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 Industrial 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.
