Gray v. Bryant, 10753

Decision Date24 October 1977
Docket NumberNo. 10753,10753
Citation557 S.W.2d 489
PartiesJohn GRAY, Plaintiff-Respondent, v. Berbage BRYANT and Charlotte Bryant, his wife, Defendants-Appellants.
CourtMissouri Court of Appeals

Donald R. Rhodes, Bloomfield, for plaintiff-respondent.

James E. McGhee, Parsons & Mitchell, Dexter, for defendants-appellants.


This is an appeal from an action on a promissory note. On April 21, 1977, a Stoddard County jury returned a verdict in favor of plaintiff in the amount of $4,333.27.

On the same day, the following entry was made:

"Judgment in favor of plaintiff and vs. defendants in total sum of $4333.27 in accordance with jury verdict. Cost taxed vs. defendants."

The quoted material may suffice as a minute or docket entry but fails to constitute a judgment from which an appeal may be taken, notwithstanding its cognomination as a "judgment." Cochran v. DeShazo, 538 S.W.2d 598, 601(6) (Mo.App.1976).

The appeal is dismissed.

All concur.
