When the within appeal was calendared for argument we examined the record filed by appellant. It clearly appears from that record that the appeal is premature inasmuch as the complaint sets forth a single claim for relief against multiple party defendants and there has been no final determination below as to one of these defendants.


Appeal dismissed for lack of appellate jurisdiction. Mull v. Ackerman, 2 Cir., 1960, 279 F.2d 25; Goldlawr, Inc. v. Heiman, 2 Cir., 1959, 273 F.2d 729.
