That is correct. Continue verifying as you had been, until you get a letter saying you don’t have to anymore.
I do not think it will be sorted out by December. I think 6 months to a year is more likely. That is my opinion and I could be mistaken.
If the Supreme Court had granted cert. for this case it would had been bad for the whole country. Because they denied it, it is good for the rest of the country who can now use this case for leverage in their own lawsuits.
