373.11 APPEALS; COUNTERCLAIM.
An appeal from the judgment of the district court may be taken as in other civil cases
within 30 days after the actual entry of the judgment. If no appeal is taken, a certified copy of
the judgment shall be filed in the office of the auditor. If an appeal is taken, the determination of
the court of appeals shall be certified to the district court and judgment entered in accordance
with it, and that judgment certified to and filed in the office of the county auditor. In either case,
after the certified copy is filed, orders shall be drawn on the county treasury in payment of any
judgment in favor of a claimant. Execution may issue out of the district court for the collection
of any costs awarded against a claimant. If costs are awarded against a claimant and there is
any allowance on the claim in favor of the claimant, the amount of the costs shall be deducted
from the allowance. In any case of an appeal, the county may interpose in the district court as a
counterclaim any demand which it has against the claimant, and have execution for the collection
of any judgment in its favor.
