They already won $1M from him.
I'm afraid that's not so: the protesters got $1M from UC Davis. Your premiss is false, and that means your conclusions are as well.
But I don't think he'll get much comfort from the money anyway. It's, what, the equivalent of four months severance, or, if it comes to him without taxes due, eight. Then what? Imagine his future job interviews, and the employers who won't take him on as a liability. Legitimate, honest work won't pay him $120K any more, he's done. No more responsibility, no more public. He will be lonely, with his memory and his fear as constant companions. $38K won't last all that long.
