Yes. In each case, the defendant gave in and did what was required by the GPL.

In each case, the plaintiffs dismissed before the Court could even read
the text of the GPL... it was that or pay the defendants' attorney fees
and court costs.

In the Verizon case, Verizon kicked their butt out of court and forced
them to give up the right to file their silly GPL claims against Verizon
ever again.
