4. 2 things

1) the case was dismissed because "Mr. Michel has not shown that he has suffered an individualized injury such that he can maintain this action."

2) The Constitution does not require that the Senate give advice and consent just that the President cannot take certain actions without that advice and consent. So the Court cannot (and should not) use its power to force action upon a co-equal branch of government.
