Laerte Gschwenter, lawyer for the case and who will make the oral argument, said that the vote "could end the legal setback that surrounds this issue". Gschwenter follows that same line when he says that given the general repercussion that the matter was considered, the processes that deal with games of luck, bingos, or slots, will be effectively extinct and filed throughout the country, if so is decided by the Supreme Court.

In addition to the regulation of gambling, other topics that will be discussed in the scheduled judgments, which deserve to be highlighted, are: the sale of alcoholic beverages in stadiums and highways, issues related to children's advertising, and the right of reply in journalistic periodicals. However, Fux made it clear that the priority will be to judge issues that cover Covid-19.
