101. You've convinced me - you're not a lawyer.

The only "case" the Court could take is a review of the dismissal of the suit.

You, like the freeps, seem to suffer from the delusion that the Supreme Court is deciding whether to take the case for the purpose of ruling on the substantive issues in it. The substantive issues in the case - and in all of the other cases - have not been tried. There is no decision on the merits of any of these cases for the Supreme Court to review.

The ONLY things that are being appealed are dismissals. The ONLY thing to rule on, and not in the conference, but in a hearing to be briefed and scheduled later, would be the grounds for dismissing the case below.

If you were an attorney, you'd know that.
