Pg: 2 of 2
R. Francis DiPrete seeks to appeal the district court’s order granting summary
judgment to Michael Cosola, one of the three Defendants to DiPrete’s complaint; the action
remains pending as to the other two Defendants. 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 order DiPrete seeks to appeal is neither a final order nor
an appealable interlocutory or collateral order. See Porter v. Zook, 803 F.3d 694, 696 (4th
Cir. 2015). Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal for lack of jurisdiction. 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.
