Civil Practice: Real Party in Interest-Finality of Judgment

Where appellant challenged the grant of motions to dismiss filed by respondents including the county and collector of revenue with the court’s order finding that the appellant was not the real party in interest and lacked standing to sue, the order did not address the 15 remaining defendants across the 11 remaining counts, so the judgment was not final for purposes of appeal, and it was not designated as such, so the appeal must be dismissed.
