No. 1970 October Term, 1979 Appeal from the Order of the Court of Common Pleas of Delaware County, Civil Action-Law, No. 9029 of 1973.

Joseph H. Reiter, Philadelphia, for appellees.

This appeal has been taken from the order entered September 12, 1979, by the Court of Common Pleas of Delaware County. That order dismisses the motions for new trial filed on behalf of appellants. There has been no entry of judgment.
Where a motion for a new trial is made after a verdict and the motion is overruled, no appeal lies from the order refusing the new trial. Such an order is interlocutory and is unappealable. General Electric Credit Corporation v. Aetna Casualty and Surety Company, 437 Pa. 463, 263 A.2d 448 (1970); Pa.R.A.P. 301.

In such cases, the appeal must be from the judgment which is entered on the verdict. General Electric Credit Corporation v. Aetna Casualty and Surety Company, et al., supra.
It is, therefore, necessary to quash this appeal. Further, the principles of law and procedure that require this result are too vital and necessary to waive or overlook, even in the name of judicial economy.
