BROWN v. LEVINE.
A98A0828.
MCMURRAY, Presiding Judge.
Legal malpractice. Chatham Superior Court. Before Judge Freesemann.
Appellant Henry Brown filed this direct appeal from prison after the trial court disposed of appellant Brown's legal malpractice action via summary judgment. The Prison Litigation Reform Act of 1996 provides that "[a]ppeals of all actions filed by prisoners shall be as provided in Code Section 5-6-35." OCGA 42-12-8. Appellant Brown did not comply with the requisite discretionary procedures set forth in OCGA 5-6-35 when he filed this appeal. We therefore have no jurisdiction to consider appellant Brown's appeal. Botts v. Givens, 223 Ga. App. 139 (476 SE2d 816). Accordingly, we must dismiss appellant Brown's appeal.
Karsman, Brooks & Callaway, R. Krane Riddle, for appellee.
Henry Brown, pro se.
DECIDED NOVEMBER 2, 1998.
