JAMES ADAMS; ADAMS, BROWN, BERAN AND BALL, CHTD., a Professional Association; JOHN BIRD; ROBERT GLASSMAN; GLASSMAN, BIRD & BRAUN, a Partnership,
Plaintiff Elma Augustine appeals the district court's grant of summary judgment in favor of defendants-appellees on her professional malpractice claims arising out of the preparation and probate of her mother's will and trust. This court lacks jurisdiction over this appeal because the district court has not adjudicated all of the claims against all of the parties. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 54(b).
The plaintiff appeals an order of the district court dismissing some, but not all, of the defendants. Plaintiff voluntarily dismissed the claims against one of the defendants without prejudice. Therefore, the order dismissing the claims against the defendants-appellees with prejudice is not a final order. See Cook v. Rocky Mountain Bank Note Co., 974 F.2d 147, 148 (10th Cir. 1992). Pursuant to Lewis v. B.F. Goodrich, 850 F.2d 641, 645-46 (10th Cir. 1988) (en banc), this court gave the plaintiff fifteen days in which to obtain either a final judgment or a Rule 54(b) certification. The district court denied the plaintiff's motion for certification.
Accordingly, this appeal is DISMISSED. The mandate shall issue forthwith.
