NOTICE: Ninth Circuit Rule 36-3 provides that dispositions other than opinions or orders designated for publication are not precedential and should not be cited except when relevant under the doctrines of law of the case, res judicata, or collateral estoppel.
David Otis SMITH, aka David P. McCaslin, Plaintiff-Appellant,
Charles O. PORTER, Defendant-Appellee.
United States Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit.
No. Jan. 8, 1991.
Before FARRIS, K.K. HALL and KOZINSKI, Circuit Judges.
We have no jurisdiction over this appeal. The district court entered its judgment on May 2, 1990. CR 32. The appellant failed to file a notice of appeal within 30 days, or at any time thereafter. FRAP 4(a)(1). Appellant's earlier notice of appeal, filed after the magistrate issued his findings and recommendation on March 29, 1990, but before the district court announced its decision on April 25, 1990, CR 31, was premature and therefore of no effect.
