1

Appellee's motion to dismiss this appeal for lack of jurisdiction is granted. The granting of a motion for a mistrial is not a final order which terminates the litigation on the merits and leaves nothing to be done but to enforce by execution what has been determined. Gilmore v. United States, 5 Cir. 1959, 264 F.2d 44, 45. Finality is necessary to bring the order within our appellate jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C.A. Sec. 1291.

Dismissed.
