Case: 15-60352 Document: 00513569506 Page: 1 Date Filed: 06/28/2016 IN THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FIFTH CIRCUIT No. 15-60352 c/w No. 15-60564 Summary Calendar United States Court of Appeals Fifth Circuit FILED June 28, 2016 Lyle W. Cayce Clerk UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff-Appellee v. JERRY LEON ROBINSON, also known as Jerry Robinson, Defendant-Appellant Appeals from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi USDC No. 1:10-CR-103 Before JOLLY, DENNIS, and PRADO, Circuit Judges. PER CURIAM: * Jerry Robinson, federal inmate # 15972-043, seeks leave to proceed in forma pauperis (IFP) in his appeals from the denial of his motions to compel counsel to surrender his case file and to dismiss the indictment for lack of subject jurisdiction. The appeals are CONSOLIDATED. Pursuant to 5TH CIR. R. 47.5, the court has determined that this opinion should not be published and is not precedent except under the limited circumstances set forth in 5TH CIR. R. 47.5.4. * Case: 15-60352 Document: 00513569506 Page: 2 Date Filed: 06/28/2016 No. 15-60352 c/w No. 15-60564 Neither of Robinson’s motions fell into a recognized category of postconviction motions. Consequently, the instant appeals are from the denial of “meaningless, unauthorized motion[s],” and the district court lacked jurisdiction to entertain them. United States v. Early, 27 F.3d 140, 142 (5th Cir. 1994). Thus we pretermit as moot any ruling on Robinson’s IFP motions. APPEALS DISMISSED. 2
