Without some background information, it is hard to say anything.

Really lame article. I just heard of this but the article could have gave reasons why the author went to court in the article. Also it gave the verdict but not the court or judges reason for why it sided for the defendant.

Was he claiming they removed his manga because he published it independently? The article is too vague.
