Bankruptcy: Finality Of Order-Discharge

Where debtors challenged the denial of their motion for a determination of whether a confirmation order barred a state court action relating to an underlying contract, the bankruptcy court did not reach the merits of the request for declaratory judgment on the discharge issue, so the order was not final and the appeal must be dismissed.

Appeal is dismissed.
