UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS
FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT
SOPHRONIA C. PETTIFORD,
Plaintiff - Appellant,
EASTERN SAVINGS BANK,
Defendant - Appellee.
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern
District of Virginia, at Richmond.
Henry E. Hudson, District
February 16, 2017
Before GREGORY, Chief Judge,
HAMILTON, Senior Circuit Judge.
February 21, 2017
Dismissed and remanded by unpublished per curiam opinion.
Sophronia C. Pettiford, Appellant Pro Se.
Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
Pg: 2 of 2
Sophronia C. Pettiford seeks to appeal the district court’s
order dismissing her civil complaint without prejudice for lack
jurisdiction only over final orders, 28 U.S.C. § 1291 (2012),
§ 1292 (2012); Fed. R. Civ. P. 54(b); Cohen v. Beneficial Indus.
Loan Corp., 337 U.S. 541, 545-46 (1949).
Because it is possible
that Pettiford could cure the defects in her complaint through
amendment, the order she seeks to appeal is neither a final
order nor an appealable interlocutory or collateral order.
Goode v. Cent. Va. Legal Aid Soc’y, 807 F.3d 619, 623-25, 628-30
(4th Cir. 2015).
Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal for lack of
jurisdiction, and remand the case to the district court with
instructions to allow Pettiford to file an amended complaint.
this court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
DISMISSED AND REMANDED
