The Nevada Republican party says that any candidate who files for the Presidential Primary is not eligible to participate in the caucus.
Only registered Republicans in Nevada are already eligible to participate in the caucuses [Standing Rules Section 1.3]. Neither "write-in" ballots nor a "none of the above" option shall be permitted [Section 2.1 b].

31 May 2023: Nevada GOP says it's suing to restore state presidential caucuses from KSNV.
Today, the Nevada Republican Party filed a lawsuit against the State of Nevada to ensure that only Republicans will decide the method of choosing our Republican Presidential nominee.
Due to the inability of Nevada Democrats to execute a smooth, efficient caucus, they want to use unaccountable dark money in an attempt to force Republicans to change the way we choose our Presidential nominee, and allow out-of-state interests to interfere in the Nevada GOP nominating process. The first four early states continue to stand together to maintain our historic role in the Presidential nominating process. Despite the continued stonewalling of Governor Lombardo’s election bills seeking voter ID and transparent, accountable elections, the Nevada Republican Party will never stop fighting for free and fair elections. We look forward to the precedent that political parties may decide their method of choosing their nominee being upheld in court.

22 June 2023: Nevada officials call for dismissal of GOP lawsuit to stop presidential primary election from the Nevada Independent. The attorney general says that the Nevada Republican Party's case does not have merit. The party is not bound by the results of the state's primary.
10 July 2023: Judge James Russell denied a suit (Republican Party v State, Carson City 23-0000051-1B) to prevent the state from holding a Presidential Primary per AB126 2021. The party plans to appeal.
