Pg: 3 of 3
Irvin Jefferson Wilson seeks to appeal the district court’s order accepting the
magistrate judge’s recommendation and dismissing without prejudice Wilson’s 42 U.S.C.
§ 1983 (2012) complaint. 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).
Because it appears conceivable that some of the deficiencies
identified by the district court may be remedied by filing an amended complaint, we
conclude that the order Wilson seeks to appeal is neither a final order nor an appealable
interlocutory or collateral order. See Goode v. Cent. Va. Legal Aid Soc’y, Inc., 807 F.3d
619, 623-24 (4th Cir. 2015); Domino Sugar Corp. v. Sugar Workers Local Union 392, 10
F.3d 1064, 1066-67 (4th Cir. 1993). Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal for lack of
jurisdiction and remand the case to the district court with instructions to allow Wilson to
amend his complaint. See Goode, 807 F.3d at 630. 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.
