This is incredibly strange reporting.

Normally, when one party sues another they include a litany of accusations, only expecting to win on 
one or another, and if they win on only one or another and are awarded *$100 million* in damages 
from a private party, that is reported as a massive loss for the defendant.

Here that exact outcome is being reported as a "win" for the defendant, seemingly in large part just 
because the defendant is claiming it as a win (despite the accusers also, seemingly rightfully, 
claiming it as a win).
