historical event in the story or an actual evet from history?

Disheartened after losing money in a lawsuit, he spends much of his day drinking. Jones is an allegory for Tsar Nicholas II. As far as lawsuit, I'm not sure of the allegory.

I've spent the last 20 minutes trying to find you a direct parallel to the lawsuit with no luck. As Aslan says, Jones represents Tsar Nicholas, and his removal from the farm by the animals directly correlates with Russian history; but the lawsuit? You've got me there!

i also cannot find the answer to the lawsuit question.
