Decided May 11, 1942
316 U.S. 283
Under Rule 54(b) of the Rules of Civil Procedure, a judgment which terminates the action with respect to one of several claims joined in a complaint is final for purposes of appeal under Jud.Code § 128, though the other claims remain undisposed of, where the several claims arose out of wholly separate and distinct transactions or engagements. P. 316 U. S. 285.
Certiorari, 315 U.S. 790, to review a decision of the Circuit Court of Appeals which dismissed an appeal under Jud.Code § 128 upon the ground that the judgment appealed from was not a final judgment.
