Interlake Sporting Ass`n v. Boundary Review Board, 158 Wn.2d 545 (2006) – The state Supreme Court overturned a boundary Review Board decision that, at King County`s request, extended a proposed annexation by the City of Redmond to more than three times the area represented in the annexation application. The enlarged region had already voted against annexation in an election. In a decision of 5 to 4, the Tribunal found that the Review Committee had violated RCW 35A.14.140 allowing a city of code to “deny all or part of the proposed area, but could not include in the schedule the elements described in the petition” and that the audit committee had exceeded its authority under RCW 36.93.150 to amend the boundaries of a proposed schedule. The Tribunal also found that the audit committee`s decision contained the rights of landowners in the production area. However, the 2012 legislator responded to this decision in ESHB 1627 (2012 acts, Chapter 212) by changing Directive 36.93.150 (2) to give border inspection posts the explicit authority to add proposed annexation zones as long as the amount of the added area does not exceed 100% of the original proposal.

City of Walla Walla, 148 Wn.2d 835 (2003) – RCW 35A.14,900 and RCW 35.13.280 provide: that if a city serves a territory served by certain types of franchises, such a deductible is automatically terminated and the city must issue a new deductible for a period of seven years (formerly five years), unless the city buys or condemns the deductible.
According to these statutes, if the city exposes a new franchise for a period of seven years, it is still liable to the franchisee for all “measurable damage” suffered by the franchisee. The state Supreme Court has ruled that the city`s liability under RCW 35A.14,900 for “measurable damage” must be calculated “at the time of annexation, calculating the difference in the market value of the carrier`s [WUTC] certificate before and after the annexation. When setting a premium, the amount of the damage must be reduced by the benefit that the convenience store benefits from the five-year deductible extension [now seven years].
