AAA VAN SERVICES, INC. v. WILLIS.

73932.Court of Appeals of Georgia.
DECIDED FEBRUARY 12, 1987. REHEARING DENIED MARCH 5, 1987.

McMURRAY, Presiding Judge.

This is the second appeal by the defendant in this case. I AAA Van Svcs. v. Willis, 180 Ga. App. 18 (348 S.E.2d 475), we affirmed the judgment for damages which had been rendered in favor of plaintiff and against defendant. Defendant’s motion for rehearing in this court was denied.

Thereafter, defendant filed an extraordinary motion for new trial in the trial court. In the extraordinary motion, defendant raised contentions which it asserted previously in the motion for rehearing. The extraordinary motion for new trial was denied by the trial court and this appeal followed. Held:

1. We are without jurisdiction over this direct appeal since defendant did not file an application for a discretionary appeal pursuant to OCGA § 5-6-35 (a) (7). Accordingly, the appeal must be dismissed. Ibietatorremendia v. State, 174 Ga. App. 786
(332 S.E.2d 20).

2. Upon consideration of plaintiff’s motion to award damages for frivolous appeal we are of the opinion that the appeal was taken solely for delay. Accordingly, damages are awarded pursuant to
