When will courts decide cases, otherwise moot and academic

The “moot and academic” principle is not a magical formula that can automatically dissuade the courts from resolving a case.  Courts will decide cases, otherwise moot and academic, if: (1) there is a grave violation of the Constitution; (2) there is an exceptional character of the situation and the paramount public interest is involved; (3) the constitutional issue raised requires formation of controlling principles to guide the bench, the bar, and the public; and (4) the case is capable of repetition yet evading review.[20]
