Highlight

In a multi-claim or a multi-party lawsuit with some adjudicated claims, the Supreme Court will not exercise appellate jurisdiction in cases in which parties voluntarily dismiss without prejudice all remaining unadjudicated claims with an intent to circumvent the requirements of N.D.R.Civ.P. 54(b) and artificially manufacture finality for purposes of appellate jurisdiction.
