In this action a jury trial resulted in the entry of a verdict in favor of the plaintiffs-appellee by direction of the trial court. The defendant-appellant filed a motion for a new trial which was later dismissed. This appeal was then filed without a final judgment being entered in the court below. The appeal will be quashed.
We have repeatedly advised the profession that an order refusing a new trial is interlocutory and is unappealable. Cf. Bartkewich v. Billinger, 430 Pa. 207, 241 A.2d 916 (1968), and cases cited therein. The appeal should not be filed and may not be entertained until a final judgment is entered.*fn1
