Citizens for Cold Springs v. City of Reno -   "In this appeal, we examine whether citizens have standing to challenge a land annexation if they do not own the property subject to annexation.  Consistent with our prior holdings granting citizens the right to challenge land-use decisions and the language of NRS 268.668, we conclude that citizens may challenge an annexation even if the annexation does not include their property.  In this, we expand our ruling in Hantges v. City of Henderson, 121 Nev. 319, 113 P.3d 848 (2005), to grant citizens standing to challenge land annexations.  Our extension of Hantges is rooted in the plain language of NRS 268.668, which confers the right to seek judicial review to "any person" claiming to be adversely affected by an annexation.  We further use this opportunity to clarify the meaning of adverse effect in the context of NRS 268.668."
