In Re: The Conservatorship of Victoria Denise Newsome: Marilyn Newsome
On the Court's own motion, in the case before us, the record does not contain a petition for permission to appeal an interlocutory order pursuant to Mississippi Rule of Appellate Procedure 5. Further, the record lacks a Mississippi Rule of Civil Procedure 54(b) certification, which certifies that the interlocutory order was a final judgment. Therefore, the judgments from which this consolidated appeal was taken are not final, appealable judgments. Accordingly, this consolidated appeal is dismissed. The costs of this appeal are assessed to the Appellant. Randolph, P.J., not participating. Pierce, J., for the Court. Order entered.
