Jirah Kelley is appealing the district court's denial of certain motions in his action brought under 42 U.S.C. Sec. 1983. We dismiss Kelley's appeal of the court's denial of his motion for a default judgment (also characterized as a motion for summary judgment by default) for want of jurisdiction. See Bird v. Reese, 875 F.2d 256, 256 (9th Cir. 1989) (denial of a motion for a default judgment is not immediately appealable). Construing Kelley's motion for a protective order as a request for preliminary injunctive relief, we affirm the denial of the motion. Kelley apparently sought an order forbidding defendants from retaliating against him for having sued defendants. We affirm since the motion failed to show that Kelley was under any present threat of such retaliation. We deny Kelley's other requests for relief as meritless.
