Anthony Lamar Wright seeks to appeal the district court’s order adopting the
magistrate judge’s reports and recommendations and dismissing Wright’s 42 U.S.C.
§ 1983 (2012) civil rights action as against all Defendants. We dismiss the appeal for
lack of jurisdiction because the notice of appeal was not timely filed.
Parties are accorded 30 days after the entry of the district court’s final judgment or
order to note an appeal, Fed. R. App. P. 4(a)(1)(A), unless the district court extends the
appeal period under Fed. R. App. P. 4(a)(5), or reopens the appeal period under Fed. R.
App. P. 4(a)(6). “[T]he timely filing of a notice of appeal in a civil case is a jurisdictional
requirement.” Bowles v. Russell, 551 U.S. 205, 214 (2007).
The district court’s order was entered on the docket on January 20, 2017. The
notice of appeal was filed on June 14, 2017. Because Wright failed to file a timely notice
of appeal or to obtain an extension or reopening of the appeal period, we dismiss the
We deny Wright’s motions for appointment of counsel and for summary
judgment against Defendant Dr. Grant. 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.
