Washington Townhomes, LLC v. Washington County Water Conservancy District, 2016 UT 43 (Oct. 3, 2016)
Oct 3, 2016
The Utah Supreme Court reaffirmed that in order to qualify for certification under Rule 54(b), a decision must constitute a “judgment as to one or more but fewer than all of the claims or parties” at issue in the case. Because the district court’s order granting partial summary judgment in favor of the defendant did not finally dispose of any claim and did not finally adjudicate the interests of a party, the court held that Rule 54(b) certification was improper. It accordingly dismissed the appeal for lack of jurisdiction.
