So at this point no news is good news? Surely they wouldn't wait until June if they were going to rule it moot and we'd hear that sooner than later?

Their next conference is Jan 10. I wouldn't expect anything before then.

At this point, no news is no news, and nothing else.  

Here is a link to a well-written article on mootness and the NYSRPA v. NYC oral argument.

.... Chief Justice Roberts led the charge?  Ahem...

 

Imho, if the new law they enacted to undermine the lawsuit still infringes on our 2A rights, which it does, they have an obligation to right this wrong.  This business about allowing the state to reset and kick the can, forcing a new lawsuit to determine the constitutionality of the new law is crazy.  This entire logic of allowing government to infringe on Constitutional Rights, with clearly bad and onerous laws, for years and decades as it works it's way through the courts is a complete and utter travesty.  Our forefathers never anticipated a court system that allowed cases to stall for a decade or more, while the harm continues. I'm sure they also didn't anticipate murders going through years, and years through countless appeals and millions of dollars of tax payers money for smoking gun cases.

I'd agree with this. I doubt they hold a mootness ruling until June. A wild guess on my part (if they rule it's moot and there's dissents) might be it comes in February or March.

In the meantime I don't expect any of the held cases to do anything until then.
