This is inspired by another question: Is Elon Musk's child name valid in California?

The accepted answer quotes the a handbook from California Department of Public Health, Vital Records, p. 112:

The form must be completed using the 26 alphabetical characters of the English language with appropriate punctuation, if necessary.

No pictographs (), ideograms (), diacritical marks (è, ñ, ē, ç), or extraneous entries are allowed.

In comments it is mentioned that this causes problems for the large Spanish population, among others.

So, I wonder, has anybody taken this to court? If so, what was the result?

The title says "anybody else" because I am not interested in Elon Musk, but in cases that can form precedent for his possible lawsuit.
