The judgment made by the CA7 panel is not moot. It stands on its own.

What is now moot are the 2 cases that initiated the judgment. Madigan can not now appeal anything.

The two statutes at contention, should they still exist, are still barred from being enforced. That's the force of the injunction. But Illinois has passed into law a method of carry (onerous as it may seem to be to some of us) that meets the criteria set out by the opinion in Moore and Sheppard. At this point in time, that's all that matters or all that really counts.

Is this law constitutional, as passed? The courts will presume it is.

There is at least one other case in IL federal courts that will be affected by this change in the laws. Review the docket in Benson v. Chicago. The last entry is informative.
