UNPUBLISHED UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT No. 14-7318 ANTHONY LEON HOOVER ELS, Plaintiff – Appellant, v. STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA; ROY COOPER, Defendants - Appellees. Appeal from the United States District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina, at Greensboro. Catherine C. Eagles, District Judge. (1:14-cv-00564-CCE-LPA) Submitted: December 16, 2014 Before DUNCAN Circuit Judge. and DIAZ, Circuit Decided: Judges, December 19, 2014 and DAVIS, Senior Dismissed by unpublished per curiam opinion. Anthony Leon Hoover, Appellant Pro Se. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. PER CURIAM: Anthony Leon Hoover appeals the district court’s order adopting the report and recommendation of the magistrate judge and dismissing his complaint without prejudice for inter alia failure to file the complaint on the required forms and failure to include all necessary information. Because Hoover may refile his suit by filing his complaint in accordance with the district court’s directions, the dismissal order is interlocutory and not appealable. See Domino Sugar Corp. v. Sugar Workers Local Union 392, 10 F.3d 1064, 1066-67 (4th Cir. 1993). Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal for lack of jurisdiction. We dispense with oral argument adequately because presented in the the facts and materials legal contentions are before this and court argument would not aid the decisional process. DISMISSED 2
