US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 891 F.2d 294 (9th Cir. 1989) Submitted Nov. 13, 1989. *Decided Dec. 6, 1989
Before FARRIS, PREGERSON, and RYMER, Circuit Judges.
We agree with the Police Department that the District Court's order with regard to Plaintiffs' ability to use the disparate impact method of proof does not finally resolve any single, separate claim of the Plaintiffs. Interlocutory appeal is limited to those instances. See United States v. Griffin, 617 F.2d 1342, 1344 (9th Cir., 1980). Under rule 54(b), judgment is appropriate only when at least one claim of a party has been finally adjudicated.
We hold that the matter should not have been certified for review at this juncture. Appeal at the conclusion of the trial provides a sufficient remedy.
