He doesn't count. First of all, he did it pro se, and you can't
expect to succeed in such a complicated area without being or
having a lawyer. Second of all, he was suing on antitrust terms,
while naturally being unable to show any damages to the public.

He appeared to be under the impression that antitrust law means
to protect competitors, not the public. He was wrong. Because of
the licensing terms of free software, it is impossible for its
price to be raised after competitors are driven out of business.
