In this direct appeal, Nicola Hudson seeks review of the superior court's order affirming a decision of the Georgia Department of Labor, which denied Hudson's claim for unemployment benefits. We lack jurisdiction.
Under OCGA § 5-6-35 (a) (1), appeals from orders of superior courts reviewing decisions of state administrative agencies must be initiated by filing an application for discretionary review. See Dunlap v. City of Atlanta, 272 Ga. 523, 524 (531 S.E.2d 702) (2000). Hudson's failure to follow the required appellate procedure deprives us of jurisdiction over this appeal, which is hereby DISMISSED.
