final judgment rule
USA
A US rule where federal appeals courts have, with limited exception, jurisdiction only over appeals from final judgments, not interlocutory orders (28 U.S.C. §§ 1291-1292). In contrast to the federal appeals courts, certain US states give their state appellate courts jurisdiction over appeals from interlocutory orders.
