Pg: 2 of 2
Timothy D. King-El filed a notice of appeal in this 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (2012) action,
seeking review of a decision of the district court.
He failed, however, to properly
“designate the judgment, order, or part thereof being appealed” as required by Fed. R. App.
P. 3(c)(1)(B). Although he stated in his notice of appeal that he wished to appeal the district
court’s order of March 13, 2017, there is no corresponding order on or near that date on
the district court’s docket. In his informal brief, King-El claims he also seeks to appeal the
district court’s order of January 27, 2017. Again, there is no corresponding district court
order, and the docket sheet reveals that the district court has not entered any orders in KingEl’s case during 2017.
Because it is impossible for us to ascertain the judgment or order that King-El
wishes to appeal, we are constrained to dismiss the appeal for lack of jurisdiction. See
Jackson v. Lightsey, 775 F.3d 170, 176-77 (4th Cir. 2014). 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.
