Terrence Bolden v. Su-Taxi Cab, Inc.

<p>Court of Appeals of the State of Georgia ATLANTA,____________________ October 29, 2020 The Court of Appeals hereby passes the following order: A20A1113. TERRENCE BOLDEN v. SU-TAXI CAB, INC. et al. In this personal injury action, plaintiff Terrence Bolden filed a direct appeal from the trial court’s amended judgment awarding him damages in the amount of $1,436, and the court’s order denying his motion to set aside and for new trial. However, we lack jurisdiction. Appeals in actions for damages in which the judgment is $10,000.00 or less require compliance with the discretionary appeal statute. OCGA § 5-6-35 (a) (6), (b); Jennings v. Moss, 235 Ga. App. 357, 357 (509 SE2d 655) (1998). Because the judgment entered was less than $10,000, Bolden was required to file a discretionary application in order to appeal. See Jennings, 235 Ga. App. at 357; see also Hill v. Rose Elec. Co., 220 Ga. App. 603, 604 (469 SE2d 844) (1996). His failure to do so deprives this Court of jurisdiction over this appeal, which is hereby DISMISSED.
