Bloke sues Microsoft: Give me $600m – or my copy of Windows 7 back

I think a halfway decent lawyer could actually make the case that Microsoft violated the law in the way they rolled out Windows 10 updates by not allowing users to reject the upgrade. That said I'm not sure how this could possibly be a civil rights case or how exactly he figures that he's owed $600 million for it.

And, honestly, if Microsoft is smart they'll give him the downgrade rather than pay their lawyers for this one. After all, that'd cost them less than a single hour of a lawyer's time.
