that the Appellants have failed to file a Motion To Correct Errors directed to the final judgment of the trial Court.

This was a Condemnation Action brought by the plaintiff-appellee Penn-Harris-Madison School Corporation. After a trial by jury, the Court entered the following judgment:

'And now Motion for judgment on the verdict is granted and judgment is entered in favor of the defendants and against the plaintiff in the Amount of $44,250.00 plus the interest incurred in this cause and the cost of the action.

'IT IS THEREFORE CONSIDERED, ORDERED, ADJUDGED AND DECREED by the Court for the defendants and against the plaintiff in the amount of $44,250.00 plus the interest incurred in this Cause and the cost of the action.

'Judgment.'

[162 Ind.App. 30] Thereafter the defendants filed their Motion to Correct Errors and subsequently the Plaintiff filed its Cross-Motion to Correct Errors and response to Defendants' Motion to Correct Errors.

In response to these motions, the trial Court entered a new judgment and vacated its prior judgments. This judgment entry is as follows:

'ORDER ON MOTION TO CORRECT ERRORS AND FINAL JUDGMENT

'Come now the parties by counsel and the defendants having filed their motion to correct errors pursuant to Trial Rule 59 and the plaintiff having filed its cross-motion to correct errors in response to defendants' motion to correct errors and hearing having been had thereon the Court now denies plaintiff's cross-motion to correct errors and denies specifications 1 and 4 of defendants' motion to correct errors and grants specifications 2 and 3 of defendants' motion to correct errors; the Court finds that interest computed at 4% per annum on the jury's verdict rendered May 2, 1973, in the amount of $44,250.00 for the period from January 7, 1970, to May 2, 1973, in the amount of $5,862.77 is due defendants and that defendants are entitled to a judgment in the total sum of $50,112.77 and the costs of this action.

'IT IS, THEREFORE, CONSIDERED AND ADJUDGED by the Court that the defendants have and recover of the plaintiff as final judgment in this cause the sum of $50,112.77 plus the costs of this action.

'IT IS FURTHER ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that the prior judgments entered herein on the 10th day of October, 1969, and the 2nd day of May, 1973, are hereby vacated and set aside.

'Dated this 7th day of September, 1973.

NORMAN KOPEC

Judge, St. Joseph Superior Court'

No Motion to Correct Errors was directed to this final judgment. Instead, Appellants filed their praecipe and this attempted appeal on the merits follows.

In comparing the earlier judgment on the verdict of the jury and the final judgment, it is readily apparent that not [162 Ind.App. 31] only did the final judgment...
