William J. Jordan, Appellant Pro Se.

John Berkley Grimball, II, Office of the United States Attorney, Columbia, South Carolina; James Albert Stuckey, Jr., Stuckey & Kobrovsky, Charleston, South Carolina, for Appellees.



Before HALL, WILKINSON, and WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges.




William J. Jordan appeals the district court's summary judgment in favor of the federal Defendants, but not disposing of the claims with regard to the state Defendants. We dismiss the appeal for lack of jurisdiction because the order is not appealable. This Court may exercise jurisdiction only over final orders, 28 U.S.C.s 1291 (1988), and certain interlocutory and collateral orders, 28 U.S.C. § 1292 (1988); Fed. R. Civ. P. 54(b); Cohen v. Beneficial Indus. Loan Corp., 337 U.S. 541 (1949). The order here appealed is neither a final order nor an appealable interlocutory or collateral order.


We dismiss the appeal as interlocutory. 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.
