You normally DON'T sue unless this occurs since you generally have no damage incurred.
But to be fair to google, if it was a sophisticated play across numerous accounts it might not be "catchable" the first month or so because you might dismiss it as just a stats irregularity, we have all probably seen sites of ours have giant traffic spikes when google falls just right or stories get passed around the bloggers etc. So I think if anything, this shows that google just doesn't dismiss high paying sites out of hand as some try to insist they do.
