Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
Decided: May 31, 2017
Pg: 2 of 2
Roger Earl Coley seeks to appeal the magistrate judge’s order and
recommendation denying Coley’s request for counsel and recommending the action be
construed as a 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (2012) petition and dismissed without prejudice. 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
Coley 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.
