COOPER, ET AL. v. STEVEN M. KIGGINS, ET AL.

Appellants voluntarily requested a dismissal, without prejudice, following the court’s denial of their motion for postponement, stating that it was making this request “[w]ith the intention of bringing the case back. . . .” The court declined to reference whether the case would be brought back, stating “I don’t think I can make any ruling with respect to that.” Kiggins’ counsel neither consented nor objected to the motion and the court granted appellants’ motion without prejudice. Appellants never sought or obtained, in a written order or otherwise, an entry of final judgment from the circuit court against Dr. Hughes, the Board, or Kiggins, nor did they refile their complaint. Accordingly, we dismiss appellants’ appeal. However, we have decided to address the remaining issues [regarding respondeat superior claims against a school principal and the board of supervisors for a teacher’s sexual abuse of a student, and the timing of a judge’s recusal] for the benefit of the parties.
