On July 14, 1976, criminal complaints were issued against petitioners charging them with disseminating obscenity in violation of Ohio Rev. Code Ann. 2907.32. The Municipal Court granted petitioners' motions to dismiss the complaints on the ground that petitioners had been subjected to selective and discriminatory prosecution in violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. The Courts of Appeals of Ohio reversed, finding the evidence insufficient to support petitioners' allegations of selective and discriminatory persecution. The case was remanded for trial. The Ohio Supreme Court affirmed. We granted certiorari. -U.S.- (1980). Because the decision of the Ohio Supreme Court was not final judgement within the meaning of 28 U.S.C. 1257, we dismiss the writ for want of jurisdiction.
