I won't say the judges in this particular case ruled in a particular way based on thie political beliefs, but SCOTUS exists, one one sense, because lower courts reach a contradiction point. Just about every SCOTUS decision makes lower judges' rulings moot. That doesn't mean that they are "activist judges".

It's worth noting, SCOTUS hasn't ruled on anything yet. Just issued a stay.
