As the user is operating on a licence from the OSMF, the foundation
would have to make the determination that the users licence is actually
void, so the answer is in practical terms no (you are not a party to
that agreement).

That is using a rather wide definition of sue, as in "take some formal
legal action" and naturally you can always do that,  the chances of
achieving something instead of just spending money tend to vary though.
