If it was just a plane Jane helmet to helmet then they made the wrong call.

You're the lawyer , so I think you are very well qualified to read the rules, but also the reason for the rule.

The rule was made "supposedly" to protect a defenseless player.
So I would think as long as that guy is qualified as such, he should be "protected" by that rule.
