MEISEL; DAVID H. COHEN, Defendants - Appellees. Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, at Greenbelt. Paula Xinis, District Judge. (8:15-cv-02857-PX) Submitted: May 23, 2017 Decided: May 25, 2017 Before KING, AGEE, and WYNN, Circuit Judges. Dismissed by unpublished per curiam opinion. Barry J. Bluefeld, Appellant Pro Se. Wayne, Pennsylvania, for Appellees. Matthew D. Matkov, SALTZ MATKOV PC, Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. Appeal: 17-1046 Doc: 19 Filed: 05/25/2017 Pg: 2 of 2 PER CURIAM: 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. DISMISSED 2
