I don't believe it has been taken to court yet. Ultimately, a League would argue that a RFA has a right to sign with whomever he chooses, so it is legal. The player would argue that the associated cost of signing a RFA to a contract hurts his market value.

He doesn't have a contract and the rules hurt his market value; I can't imagine the European courts not siding with the player if it was ever challenged.
