Washington, DC asked in Constitutional Law for District of Columbia

Q: Did Metro. Wash Ch, Associated Builders, et al v. DC of 2014 ever answer the Privileges and Immunities question?

I see from the Opinion of J. Sullivan of July 14, 2014, that the Priviliges and Immunities question was left open. I am wondering whether or not the parties pursued this question, as this portion of the motion to dismiss was denied. In particular, the court left the question as to whether "the First Source Act's residential hiring preferences...are narrowly tailored to address the unique evil of the District's inability to levy a commuter tax." It appears that there has not been much, if any, written about this since the initial Opinion, so I would greatly appreciate any insight into the current status of the First Source Law generally, or this case specifically. Thank you again.
