Before FRIENDLY, Chief Judge, and MOORE and ANDERSON, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM:


The motions to dismiss the appeals from the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York for lack of jurisdiction are denied. The cross-motion to allow the plaintiffs an additional thirty days in which to file their briefs is granted.

FRIENDLY, Chief Judge (concurring):

The decision of the Third Circuit in Hackett v. General Host Corporation, 455 F.2d 618 (3 Cir. 1972), refusing to follow our death knell doctrine, enhances the doubts which I expressed in Korn v. Franchard Corp., 443 F.2d 1301, 1307 (2 Cir. 1971). However, since a petition for certiorari has been filed with respect to Hackett, there is hope that this issue will be settled by the highest authority. I therefore concur.
