United States Court of Appeals For the Eighth Circuit ___________________________ No. 16-3221 ___________________________ David Gerard Jeep, and heir lllllllllllllllllllll Plaintiff - Appellant v. Government of the United States of America lllllllllllllllllllll Defendant - Appellee ____________ Appeal from United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri - St. Louis ____________ Submitted: October 31, 2016 Filed: December 22, 2016 [Unpublished] ____________ Before SMITH, BOWMAN, and KELLY, Circuit Judges. ____________ PER CURIAM. David Jeep filed a notice of appeal while this action was pending. After careful review, we dismiss the appeal for lack of appellate jurisdiction because Jeep’s notice of appeal did not designate the order, judgment, or part thereof that he was appealing. See Fed. R. App. P. 3(c)(1)(B) (notice of appeal must designate judgment, order, or part thereof being appealed); Smith v. Barry, 502 U.S. 244, 248 (1992) (Rule 3 Appellate Case: 16-3221 Page: 1 Date Filed: 12/22/2016 Entry ID: 4482638 requirements are jurisdictional). We also deny as moot Jeep’s pending motion for leave to appeal in forma pauperis. ______________________________ -2- Appellate Case: 16-3221 Page: 2 Date Filed: 12/22/2016 Entry ID: 4482638
