California Litigants cannot make a Case Appealable by Dismissing Unadjudicated Issues

Section 904.1 of the California Code of Civil Procedure allows appellate courts to hear appeal from a final judgment. In this case, the California Supreme ruled that parties to a litigation in which some of the issues are not yet adjudicated cannot make the case appealable by dismissing without prejudice the unadjudicated issues while the parties agree to toll the statute of limitation on the dismissed causes.
