UNPUBLISHED UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT No. 06-8005 STEPHEN RAY WESTBERRY, Plaintiff - Appellant, versus THOMAS W. BEHRMANN; LARRY MONTGOMERY; GEOFFREY R. MCKEE; STEVE SHEA, Defendants - Appellees. Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina, at Beaufort. R. Bryan Harwell, District Judge. (9:06-cv-02759-RBH) Submitted: January 25, 2007 Decided: February 1, 2007 Before WIDENER and MICHAEL, Circuit Judges, and HAMILTON, Senior Circuit Judge. Dismissed by unpublished per curiam opinion. Stephen Ray Westberry, Appellant Pro Se. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. PER CURIAM: Stephen Ray Westberry seeks to appeal the report and recommendation of the magistrate judge entered November 16, 2006. This court may exercise jurisdiction only over final orders, 28 U.S.C. § 1291 (2000), and certain interlocutory and collateral orders, 28 U.S.C. § 1292 (2000); Fed. R. Civ. P. 54(b); Cohen v. Beneficial Indus. Loan Corp., 337 U.S. 541 (1949). The order Westberry seeks to appeal is not an appealable interlocutory or collateral order. Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal for lack of jurisdiction. 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 - 2 -
