HUDON et al. v. NORTH ATLANTA et al.
DUCKWORTH, Chief Justice.
Declaratory judgment. DeKalb Superior Court. Before Judge Dean.
This case falls within the jurisdiction of the Court of Appeals since it is one for a declaration of the rights of the parties and shows that "the status of the respective parties pending the adjudication" should be maintained by the issuance of a temporary injunction. Felton v. Chandler, 201 Ga. 347 (39 SE2d 654); Milwaukee Mechanics' Ins. Co. v. Davis, 204 Ga. 67 (48 SE2d 876); Griffin v. Hardware Mut. Ins. Co., 212 Ga. 130 (91 SE2d 10). To make a case one for equity jurisdiction it must contain allegations and prayers for equitable relief. Decatur County v. Praytor, Howton & Wood Contr. Co., 36 Ga. App. 611 (137 SE 918); City of Summerville v. Georgia Power. Co., 204 Ga. 276, 277 (3) (49 SE2d 661); Odom v. Atlanta & West Point R. Co., 204 Ga. 328 (1) (49 SE2d 821); U. S. Cas. Co. v. Georgia Sou. R. Co., 212 Ga. 569 (94 SE2d 422); Hollinshed v. Shadrick, 212 Ga. 624 (94 SE2d 705). While there is a prayer for permanent injunction, the allegations are insufficient to authorize the grant of such relief, and if such a prayer alone determined jurisdiction, litigants could require this court to review every case as being within the jurisdiction of the court as an equity matter by adding such a spurious prayer. Accordingly, the writ of error is
T. B. Higdon, contra.
Bagwell & Hames, James A. Bagwell, for plaintiffs in error.
ARGUED JUNE 10, 1963 -- DECIDED JULY 3, 1963.
