Syllabus

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.
