The plaintiff appeals an order dismissing defendant United States of America in this wrongful termination action. The claims against defendant Human Affairs International, Inc., remain pending before the district court.


A judgment is final for purposes of 28 U.S.C. Sec. 1291 "when all issues presented in the litigation on the merits and leaves nothing to be done except to enforce by execution what has been determined." Donovan v. Hayden, Stone, Inc., 434 F.2d 619, 620 (6th Cir.1970) (per curiam). Absent certification for interlocutory appeal under 28 U.S.C. Sec. 1292(b) or Rule 54(b), Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, an order disposing of fewer than all parties or claims is nonappealable. William B. Tanner Co. v. United States, 575 F.2d 101 (6th Cir.1978) (per curiam); Oak Construction Co. v. Huron Cement Co., 475 F.2d 1220 (6th Cir.1973) (per curiam).


The district court's order dismissing the United States was neither final nor certified for interlocutory review. Accordingly,


It is ORDERED that this appeal is dismissed for lack of appellate jurisdiction. Rule 9(b)(1), Rules of the Sixth Circuit.
