In this diversity action, Bennett-Charles Formanack seeks to appeal after the district court1 dismissed his complaint for lack of subject-matter jurisdiction, and 1 The Honorable Paul A. Magnuson, United States District Judge for the District of Minnesota. denied his postjudgment motions. After careful review, we dismiss the appeal for lack of appellate jurisdiction, because Formanack’s notice of appeal did not designate the order, judgment, or part thereof that he was appealing. See Fed. R. App. P. 3(c)(1)(B) (notice of appeal must designate judgment, order, or part thereof being appealed); Smith v. Barry, 502 U.S. 244, 248 (1992) (Rule 3 requirements are jurisdictional). We also deny as moot Formanack’s pending motion to suppress. ______________________________ -2-
