Pg: 2 of 2
Lamarr Barthell Dingle appeals the district court’s order denying his motion to
order a third party to submit an affidavit in Dingle’s habeas proceeding. We dismiss the
appeal as interlocutory. ∗
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 Dingle seeks to appeal is neither a final order nor an appealable interlocutory or
collateral order. Accordingly, we deny leave to proceed in forma pauperis and 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.
In a prior opinion we construed Dingle’s appeal as challenging the district
court’s dismissal of his § 2254 petition. However, we later determined that Dingle’s
appeal was misdocketed through no fault of his own, and we have exercised our inherent
authority to recall the mandate in this appeal and sua sponte granted rehearing by separate
order. See Calderon v. Thompson, 523 U.S. 538, 549-50 (1998).
