American Express Bank, Ltd., Plaintiff-counter-defendant-appellee, v. Mohammed Hassan Haeri Foumani, Defendant-counter-claimant-appellant, 39 F.3d 1186 (9th Cir. 1994)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 39 F.3d 1186 (9th Cir. 1994) Submitted Oct. 17, 1994. *Decided Oct. 31, 1994

Before: BROWNING, FARRIS, and LEAVY, Circuit Judges.


M.H. Haeri Foumani appeals pro se the district court's post-judgment order compelling him to respond to interrogatories propounded by American Express Bank in aid of execution of judgment. We dismiss the appeal for lack of jurisdiction because Foumani has followed none of the procedures to appeal post-judgment orders granting discovery. See Richmark Corp. v. Timber Falling Consultants, 937 F.2d 1444, 1449 (9th Cir. 1991) (party must appeal from contempt order), cert. denied, 113 S. Ct. 295 (1992); Hughes v. Sharp, 476 F.2d 975, 975 (9th Cir. 1973) (party must appeal from denial of motion to quash or seek leave to appeal pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1292(b)). Because none of the possible avenues of appeal were pursued, we need not consider any doubts raised in Richmark Corp. v. Timber Falling Consultants, 959 F.2d 1468, 1471 n. 1 (9th Cir.), cert. dismissed, 113 S. Ct. 454 (1992), about the proper procedure to appeal.



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