Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, at Baltimore.
Ellen L. Hollander, District Judge. (1:12-cv-00572-ELH)
Submitted: July 20, 2017
Decided: July 24, 2017
Before DUNCAN and WYNN, Circuit Judges, and HAMILTON, Senior Circuit Judge.
Dismissed by unpublished per curiam opinion.

Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
Pg: 3 of 3
Bruce W. Koenig seeks to appeal the district court’s order returning his motion to
reopen a prior proceeding in which he was not a party. We dismiss the appeal for lack of
jurisdiction because the notice of appeal was not timely filed.
Parties are accorded 30 days after the entry of the district court’s final judgment or
order to note an appeal, Fed. R. App. P. 4(a)(1)(A), unless the district court extends the
appeal period under Fed. R. App. P. 4(a)(5), or reopens the appeal period under Fed. R.
App. P. 4(a)(6). “[T]he timely filing of a notice of appeal in a civil case is a jurisdictional
requirement.” Bowles v. Russell, 551 U.S. 205, 214 (2007).
The district court’s order was entered on the docket on August 16, 2016. The
notice of appeal was filed, at the earliest, on January 24, 2017. Because Koenig failed to
file a timely notice of appeal or to obtain an extension or reopening of the appeal period,
we dismiss the appeal. 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.
