Edward Marcano seeks to appeal the district court’s order dismissing his 28
U.S.C. § 2254 (2012) petition without prejudice for failure to pay the filing fee or to
move for leave to proceed in forma pauperis. In his notice of appeal, Marcano provided
evidence that he did submit the requisite filing fee. 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 Marcano seeks to appeal is neither a final
order nor an appealable interlocutory or collateral order. 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 deny leave to
proceed in forma pauperis, dismiss the appeal for lack of jurisdiction, and remand the
case to the district court with instructions to give Marcano an opportunity to reinstate his
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
