Attorney(s) appearing for the Case
Joshua M. Salzman , Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP, Washington, D.C., for the petitioner-appellee.
Christopher J. Rench , Deputy Attorney General, Sacramento, CA, for the respondent-appellant.
Opinion by Judge GRABER, Concurrence by Judge O'SCANNLAIN.
United States Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit.
GRABER, Circuit Judge:
Petitioner Steven Prellwitz filed a petition for habeas corpus, challenging the California Board of Parole Hearings' ("Board") denial of his parole. Defendant, Warden D.K. Sisto, appeals the district court's order instructing the Board to conduct a new parole hearing. Because the district court's order was not a final decision, we dismiss the appeal for lack of appellate jurisdiction.
