RENO, Nev. (AP) - The Nevada Supreme Court has upheld the city of Reno's annexation of 7,000 acres in Cold Springs.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports the high court ruled the city did nothing wrong when it expanded its territory into the community.

About a dozen property owners asked the city to annex their undeveloped land in 2005. But residents in the unincorporated areas of Cold Springs challenged the decision, arguing it would destroy their rural lifestyles.

The legal questions have been winding through the court system for years.

But in a July 8 ruling, the Supreme Court said residents who challenged the annexation didn't demonstrate an adverse effect to support claims that the city abused its discretion.
