Rexford Garland Cassidy, Plaintiff--appellant, v. Mr. Lawson, Warden, Defendant--appellee, 74 F.3d 1230 (4th Cir. 1996)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 74 F.3d 1230 (4th Cir. 1996)

Submitted Jan. 11, 1996. Decided Jan. 23, 1996


Rexford Garland Cassidy, Appellant Pro Se.

Before RUSSELL, HALL, and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges.


Dismissed by unpublished per curiam opinion.

PER CURIAM

Appellant appeals the district court's dismissal of his Complaint without prejudice for failure to particularize his claims. 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.

DISMISSED
