Not all judgments can be appealed. The general rule is that any appeal must await the final judgment in the case. There are exceptions for some partial final judgments and for certain kinds of interlocutory judgments. Last week, the Louisiana Fourth Circuit issued an opinion dismissing an appeal, and in hornbook-like manner, explained the process for determining whether a judgment can be appealed and the reason the judgment in question was not appealable. See Pollard v. Alpha Technical, 2013-1239 (La. App. 4 Cir. 2/5/14).
