An appeal may be taken direct to the court of appeals from a judgment or order which finally determines an action or special proceeding where the only question involved on the appeal is the validity of a statutory provision of the state or of the United States under the constitution of the state or of the United States. On any such appeal only the constitutional question shall be considered and determined by the court.
