The SFLC asks for relief as if the GPL does not exist and the other side has simply been violating copyrights. It is up to the other side to assert that it is using the GPL as a license, whereupon they must explain why they are not honoring it. This is

This is what the SFLC asked for, but they got nothing.  Verizon
still distributes the routers and no injunction was issued. Verizon paid no damages. Verizon disgorged not profits.

Verizon now complies with the GPL, which is the goal of the enforcement action. Thus the SFLC won.

Verizon paid no litigation expenses for the SFLC.

How do you know this?

The court merely dismissed the case with predjudice.

False. The two sides settled and the plaintiffs therefore dismissed the case, there no longer being any matters in dispute.

That sure looks like they came up empty.

Compliance. Compliance sought, compliance achieved.

The SFLC received NOTHING, absolutely NOTHING they requested as
relief in their lawsuit. People are not supposed to believe their
own eyes when they read the complaint and prayer for relief. Instead
they are supposed to believe what some delusional GNU fan claims the
SFLC *really* claims.

GNU fans never lose, they just moooooooooooooooove the goalposts.
