§ 15.2-3902

Moratorium on annexation suits pending transition to city

Any annexation suit filed against a county on or after the day the county’s petition for city status is filed in the circuit court shall be stayed pending the special court’s order denying eligibility for city status or the election ordered on the proposed city charter, whichever occurs. If the voters approve the city charter, all annexation suits stayed pending the outcome of the election shall be dismissed. If the voters disapprove the city charter, all pending stays shall be dissolved.
