Pg: 2 of 2
Brian David Hill seeks to appeal the magistrate judge’s order denying his
discovery-related motions and granting Defendants’ motion to quash discovery in his
pending Freedom of Information Act 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 Hill 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 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.
