Didn't he get school credit? We aren't required to pay interns but we give them a whopping 350 euro's a month to bring me coffee and watching me being awesome..

If the employer benefits from the interns work than they are required to pay him/her compensation for their work.
This is a labor law.
Justice served.

It didn't say. 

I could see it not being a big deal if he was just a coffee intern, but sounds like he was coding or doing something important if he should have gotten 100/day. 

But you have to really feel you have been wronged to burn an internship and sue the company.  Then even bigger to refuse whatever they offered him with the  gag order.

And he won the lawsuit.
