APPEAL DISMISSED


Dr. X, a/k/a Shaka Macumba Zulu X, of Ridgeville, for Appellant. 

Robert Wesley Jacobs, of Lexington, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Dr. X appeals the circuit court's dismissal of his appeal from the Administrative Law Court (ALC), arguing:  (1) the South Carolina Department of Corrections disobeyed our supreme court's order requiring judicial review of his appeal; (2) the loss of the original record on appeal precludes meaningful appellate review; and (3) the circuit court and ALC erred in denying his summary judgment motions.  We dismiss[1] Dr. X's appeal pursuant to Rule 220(b), SCACR, and the following authority:  Slezak v. S.C. Dep't of Corrs., 361 S.C. 327, 331, 605 S.E.2d 506, 507 (2004) (recognizing an appellate court lacks appellate jurisdiction over an administrative or non-collateral matter until entry of a final agency decision). 

APPEAL DISMISSED.

PIEPER and GEATHERS, JJ., and CURETON, A.J., concur.


[1] We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
