Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. Appeal: 15-6447 Doc: 14 Filed: 07/27/2015 Pg: 2 of 2 PER CURIAM: Samuel R. Jackson seeks to appeal the district court’s orders disposing of several motions filed in his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (2012) suit. This court may exercise jurisdiction only over final orders, 28 U.S.C. § 1291 (2012), and certain interlocutory and collateral orders, 28 U.S.C. § 1292 (2012); Fed. R. Civ. P. 54(b); Cohen v. Beneficial Indus. Loan Corp., 337 U.S. 541, 545-46 (1949). The district court’s denial of Jackson’s motion to appoint counsel and the court’s grant of summary judgment in favor of Defendant Lightsey are neither final orders nor appealable interlocutory or collateral orders. Accordingly, we dismiss this portion of the appeal for lack of jurisdiction. Jackson also appeals the district court’s denial of three motions for injunctive relief. The court’s order is an immediately appealable interlocutory order. 28 U.S.C. § 1292(a)(1). reviewed the record and find no reversible error. We have Accordingly, we affirm the district court’s order denying injunctive relief. We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before this court and argument would not aid the decisional process. DISMISSED IN PART, AFFIRMED IN PART 2
