It's not over yet.

Had they lost here it could have set a trend of precedent of Judges ruling against the dmca in favor of the citizens because it had been done in a prior court case. They should not be permitted to drop their case. Or at the very least should be counter-sued for wrongful accusation and prosecution, public defamation (hurt his small business), slander etc. Evil triumphs when good men don't stand up against what they know is wrong. This bullying from our fascist nation is only going to intensify. I guess the only reason Crippen wouldn't follow his legal options to their fullest end is lack of funds or perhaps even guilt, i.e. installing pirated games etc for profit.

Double Jeopardy is not immunity from the same offense. For example you disapear and I am charged with your murder. In following case I am found not guilty of murdering you. After the trial I can shout, "I did it!" and walk a free man (technicalities notwithstanding). It does not give me carte blanche protection from murder charges in the future on others, just on your case. It was created to protect the individual from repeated and harrassing charges. Otherwise the state could just charge and arrest you on whim. But I am not sure this even applies as he was not found innocent, rather the charges were dropped against him. But even if it is, then it is just immunity from the xbox or xbox's he was previously charged with modding.
