Pg: 2 of 2
Eric Richardson seeks to appeal the district court’s order denying his motion to
recuse the district judge in his pending habeas proceedings. 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 Richardson 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.
