Shuttleworth blames the existing system of exchange control in South Africa for forcing him to emigrate from South Africa in 2001. He says in court papers the system made it impossible to conduct his entrepreneurial and philanthropic ventures.

I dont know enough about South African law to be able to know for sure (I doubt anyone could know that for sure anyway). However, from the limited amount I do know about SA I believe that even if the case doesnt 'bring the country/constitution (whatever) down' it could cause major issues and more lawsuits.
