Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Alexandria. Anthony John Trenga, District Judge. (1:17-cv-00430-AJT-TCB) Submitted: October 17, 2017 Decided: October 19, 2017 Before FLOYD and HARRIS, Circuit Judges, and HAMILTON, Senior Circuit Judge. Dismissed by unpublished per curiam opinion. Yolanda Bell, Appellant Pro Se. Kenneth Edward Labowitz, DINGMAN LABOWITZ, PC, Alexandria, Virginia; Mark Sheridan Brennan, Ashley Goin Moss, VANDEVENTER BLACK, LLP, Richmond, Virginia, for Appellees. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. Appeal: 17-1606 Doc: 23 Filed: 10/19/2017 Pg: 2 of 2 PER CURIAM: Yolanda Bell seeks to appeal the district court’s orders denying her motion for a temporary restraining order and her motions for reconsideration. 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 orders Bell seeks to appeal are neither final orders nor appealable interlocutory or collateral orders. Accordingly, although we grant Bell’s motion to expedite, we deny leave to proceed in forma pauperis and 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. DISMISSED 2
