Is it common for citys to change law or delete laws to try to avoid a lawsuit or the consequences to future legislation based on the lawsuit? I really dont know but to me this kind of thing one would thing would have to be illegal and yet I have no clue if it really is or isnt...

It seems contrary to the general good to even be able to do such a thing once the case has begun...

The other end of it is if the court was to throw the case out what is to stop the city from enacting the very same exact ordinance again two weeks later or some slightly modified version and then having to do through all the same steps again. It seems like a city could leverage this tool forever to deny constitutional rights...
