The instant main appeal was taken from a judgment awarding damages of $1,340 plus attorney fees in the amount of $300.
2. The cross-appeal by Roberts suffers from the same infirmity. Although OCGA 5-6-48
permits a cross-appeal to survive the dismissal of a main appeal this is true only where the cross-appeal can stand on its own merit. This court has no jurisdiction to entertain a cross-appeal "which must derive its life from the main appeal." Steele v. Cincinnati Ins. Co., 167 Ga. App. 550 (2) (307 SE2d 44) (1983)
, reversed on other grounds, Steele v. Cincinnati Ins. Co., 252 Ga. 58 (311 SE2d 470) (1984)
, and cases therein cited. Here there was no application for discretionary review by cross-appellant so the cross-appeal cannot stand in its own right.
John L. Creson, for appellee.
