255 F2d 657 International Terminal Operating Co v. Waterman Steamship Co
255 F.2d 657
INTERNATIONAL TERMINAL OPERATING CO., Inc., Plaintiff-Appellant,
WATERMAN STEAMSHIP CO., Defendant-Appellee.
No. 356, Docket 25058.
United States Court of Appeals Second Circuit.
Argued May 13, 1958.
Decided May 20, 1958.
John M. Johnston, of White & Case, New York City, for plaintiff-appellant.
Edward J. Behrens, of Gay & Behrens, New York City, for defendant-appellee.
Before CLARK, Chief Judge, and SWAN and LUMBARD, Circuit Judges.
In his judgment and order denying plaintiff reimbursement for compensation benefits paid its employee, the trial judge made clear that he was reserving for trial the defendant's counterclaim for reimbursement of the sum it had paid in settlement of the employee's claim against it for negligent injury. But he made no finding that 'there is no just reason for delay' or direction for the entry of judgment, as required by Fed.Rules Civ.Proc. rule 54(b), to provide an appealable judgment. Apparently he concluded that a full trial was desirable before a final judgment should be entered. Accordingly the appeal must be dismissed for lack of an appealable judgment.
