Butler v. Hite

96-6347 | 4th Cir. | Aug 20, 1996

Before MURNAGHAN and ERVIN, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge. Dismissed by unpublished per curiam opinion. James A. Butler, Appellant Pro Se. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. See Local Rule 36(c).


Appellant appeals from the district court's order denying his motion for an extension of time to file a motion pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 59 or an appeal from the district court's order remand- ing the underlying case to state court. We have reviewed the record and the district court's opinion and find no abuse of discretion. Accordingly, we deny Appellant's motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the dis- trict court. Butler v. Hite, No. CA-96-67-2 (E.D. Va. Feb. 28, 1996). To the extent that Appellant attempts to appeal from the remand order, the order is not appealable. 28 U.S.C. § 1447(d) (1988). We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
