The background
As I understand it the city changed the law after SCOTUS accepted the case to try to stop the case from being heard. The city sent a brief saying since the law had been changed, the individuals and gun club filing the lawsuit against the city could now do what they were asking SCOTUS to fix. The suit filers requested that the city’s new brief be denied. The argument behind the denial request was that if SCOTUS didn’t hear the case the city could change the law back if they wanted to.

Current
SCOTUS was saying mootness is denied at this point but we want both parties to present oral arguments at the hearing as to why mootness should be considered or not.

That is how I understand it. Oh and the traditional disclaimer, IANAL.

The crux is that NYSRPA v NYC is going to orals.
SCOTUS will hear the case and issue a ruling.
