PER CURIAM:

view counter
1

The entry of judgment in the within matter adjudicated fewer than all of the claims, and the liabilities of fewer than all of the parties in and to the litigation. There has been no entry of final judgment by the district court upon an express determination that there is no just reason for delay as is required by Rule 54(b), F.R.Civ.Procedure. Hence, the judgment lacks the requisite finality to be appealable within the meaning of 28 U.S.C.A. Sec. 1291. Bailey v. Rowan Drilling Company, 5 Cir., 1971, 441 F.2d 57; Cook v. Eizenman, 5 Cir., 1963, 312 F.2d 134.

Dismissed.
