Florida GSA suit dismissed

Hey everyone,

I was poking around some news stories and came across the following

From what I understand, essentially, gay-straight alliances in public schools are always in court fighting for recognition. however, in this case the judge dismissed the case because the named student in the case graduated the high school - so there is no case or controversy anymore.

The original district court suit was filed over 2 years what are your thoughts on this issue evading review because of mootness????
