Pg: 2 of 2
Barry J. Bluefeld seeks to appeal the district court’s order directing him to obtain
counsel or face dismissal of his pending derivative shareholder action. 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 Bluefeld seeks
to appeal is neither a final order nor an appealable interlocutory or collateral order.
Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal for lack of jurisdiction. We deny Bluefeld’s motion
for 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.
