A complaint has been filed challenging the validity of an immigration reform petition in Nevada because of an invalid address.

The complaint filed Tuesday with the secretary of state's office alleges Republican Assemblyman Chad Christensen of Las Vegas doesn't have a valid address to reach him and his petition advocacy group.

Christensen named himself resident agent for the petition drive, and provided his U.S. Senate campaign office address. But he lost the GOP Senate race primary.

Christensen has vowed to collect the required 97,002 signatures by Nov. 9 to have his "Nevada Immigration Verification" initiative considered by the 2011 Legislature.

A business group challenging the petition in state court in Carson City says it has been unable to serve Christensen with legal papers.
