Civil Practice: Dismissal-Docket Sheet Entry-Jurisdiction

Where appellant challenged the dismissal with prejudice of her petition against respondent and a bank for claims including conversion and fraud, the dismissal by docket sheet entry did not meet the requirements of Rule 74.01(a) and was not a judgment, so the court retained jurisdiction and erred by then entering its judgment based solely on the conclusion that it lost jurisdiction 30 days after the dismissal.

Judgment is reversed and remanded.

(Gillis Leonard, Moberly, for appellant) (Cassie Carpenter and Todd Rex Gump, Moberly, and Jennifer Snider, Platte City, for respondents).
