No. 8061

March 31, 1976

Appeal from the Eighth Judicial District Court, Clark County; Joseph S. Pavlikowski, J.

Carl E. Lovell, Jr., City Attorney, and John J. Graves, Jr., Deputy City Attorney, Las Vegas, for Appellant.

Boyd Freedman, Las Vegas, for Respondent.


Per Curiam:

Aden I. Carver was convicted of a misdemeanor in a Las Vegas Municipal Court. A timely appeal to a District Court resulted in the conviction being reversed and the misdemeanor complaint being dismissed. The City of Las Vegas then caused this appeal to be lodged.

We do not reach the merit, if any, of the appeal. We have no jurisdiction for appellate review of a district court judgment, which has been entered on an appeal from a municipal court. Nev. Const. art. VI, § 6. See The City of Reno v. Dixon, 42 Nev. 67, 172 P. 367 (1918), and cases cited therein. Appellant's remedy, if any, would have been to timely petition for certiorari, under NRS 34.020(3). City of Reno v. District Court, 83 Nev. 201, 427 P.2d 4 (1967). Accordingly, we

ORDER this appeal dismissed.
