[ 426 Pa. Page 82]

In this ejectment action, the jury returned a verdict in favor of Paul M. Sands and Helen Sands, his wife, and against Catherin E. Straw. Subsequent thereto, Catherin E. Straw filed motions for judgment n.o.v. or, in the alternative, a new trial. On November 7, 1966, the motions for judgment n.o.v. and a new trial were dismissed. Approximately two months thereafter an appeal was taken to this Court.

No judgment on the verdict has ever been entered. In the absence of the entry of such judgment the present appeal is premature. See: Lynch v. Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, 422 Pa. 488, 222 A.2d 925 (1966).

Appeal quashed.

Disposition

Appeal quashed.
