In this diversity action for damages arising out of an automobile collision, the defendant and third-party plaintiff, Benjamin Danecki, joined the plaintiff, Merle G. Carey as a third-party defendant. Carey subsequently filed an amended answer in which he pleaded as a bar to Danecki's third-party action against him, a release executed prior to the institution of the instant suit. The District Court granted Carey's motion for judgment on the pleadings and this appeal followed.


The record discloses that the District Court did not, in accordance with Rule 54(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, 28 U.S.C.A. make an express determination that there was no just reason for delay.


Under the circumstances the appeal must be dismissed as being from an interlocutory order and it is so ordered.
