No, disadvantaged in the very real world where he paid hundreds of thousands of dollars under a contract in consideration of which ICANN had promised (explicitly or implicitly) to deal with his application fairly—a contractual promise that they have unquestionably breached.

I very much doubt the courts would care to hear argument about the merits of his application, or the consequential losses ("profits from utterly pointless domain names") he might have suffered: like the IRP, their concern will probably rest entirely on the question of whether the process was conducted properly.
