Maybe not. SCOTUS likes to take cases that have broad application. There usually isn't an opinion issued when certiorari is denied by them, but my bet the turning point on this one was that he got the weapon back. Had that not happened, then I think the Court would have taken the case and allowed him to sue the PA for $$-which is all he was seeking at this point. SCOTUS keeps their decisions on the narrow side and this was a case on the denial of the right to sue.

Had the facts been that he sued, lost and they still had the weapon, then I bet they'd take it-big principles and rights question on the table.

Here, it's kinda like the saying in the NBA-"no autopsy, no foul".
