Wood v. World Wide Association of Specialty Programs & Schools2014 UT App 106, 326 P.3d 685 (May 8, 2014) 

May 8, 2014

In this per curiam opinion, the Utah Court of Appeals dismissed the appeal for lack of jurisdiction because rule 4(c) of the Utah Rules of Appellate Procedure applies only to an order that, once entered, will become final and appealable. The rule does not apply to perfect a notice of appeal filed prior to the district court’s entry of a written order in which it certified the order for interlocutory appeal. Although in its oral ruling, the district court expressed its intention that the order dismissing some, but not all, of the plaintiff’s claims would be appealable, this did not satisfy the requirements of rule 54 for certifying an order for interlocutory appeal.
