CITY OF FLORENCE; FLORENCE POLICE DEPARTMENT; EUGENE ROEDER, Mayor of the City of Florence, in his individual and official capacity; MIKE INGLE, Chief of Florence Police Department, in his individual and official capacity,
CHUCK PRATT, Sergeant, in his individual and official capacity,
In this interlocutory appeal, Defendant-Appellant Chuck Pratt challenges the district court's decision denying him summary judgment on his qualified immunity defense. "[A]n order denying qualified immunity, to the extent it turns on an issue of law, is immediately appealable." Behrens v. Pelletier, 516 U.S. 299, 311 (1996) (citation, quotation omitted). In this case, however, the district court clearly denied Pratt qualified immunity because there remained disputed material factual issues that precluded summary judgment. It is well established that such an order is not immediately appealable. See Johnson v. Jones, 515 U.S. 304, 313, 319-20 (1995); see also Behrens, 516 U.S. at 313. We, therefore, do not have jurisdiction to consider this interlocutory appeal and so DISMISS it.
