The first court ruled in the employer's favor, but the persistent worker won on appeal with the Superior Court of Justice of Catalonia. The ruling said the worker should either get his job back or receive $9,472; it's unknown which was chosen by the employer.

Basically, the verdict is that the boss overreacted to the employee's insult.
