Highlight

A district court does not have appellate jurisdiction unless authorized by statute.
An appeal is not a matter of right but a creature of statute, and no right to appeal exists unless authorized by statute.
Absent statutory authority, a city's resolution of necessity authorizing an eminent domain proceeding may not be directly appealed to the district court.
