And if the orals occur prior to the election in the next session you will have people arguing that the SCOTUS is trying to affect the election.

So I expect Roberts (maybe others as well) would argue for distancing this case from the election and I'd guess that January is the earliest they'd hear the case. Because I expect the language to be hard-fought-over I'm guessing it gets heard no later than March.

So I'm guessing/speculating that the case is heard in the January to March time frame.
IMO, there's no way this case won't be an issue in the election. Regardless of when it is heard/orals, the decision is most likely to be issued in June -- right before the Democratic (July 13 to 16, 2020) and Repub (August 24 to 27, 2020) national conventions. That will bring the focus of the election on to federal courts, esp SCOTUS, Trump's judicial picks and the 2nd A/gun control. It will energize both the antis and our side. Last time, the MSM and Liberals didn't think he'd beat Hillary. This time the fight will be far nastier, far more expensive and far more important (more SCOTUS justices likely to retire, esp Liberal, than this presidential term).

Never mistake being delusional for being optimistic.
