The court shall accord such application precedence over any civil business not involving the public interest.


In hearing and deciding on such application, the court shall consider any evidence or statements introduced at the public hearing on such annexation, and any evidence which it finds to have been arbitrarily or capriciously excluded. If the court finds that any of the steps required by NRS 268.570 to 268.608, inclusive, have not been taken or that the governing body has abused its discretion in taking any such action, or that the requirements set forth in NRS 268.580 have not been met, the court shall make such temporary or final order in the premises as the ends of justice may require.


All actions or suits attacking the validity of the proceedings not brought within the 30-day period shall thereafter be perpetually barred.
