No, it's worse than nothing.  With nothing you are only arguing against
your opponent.  With a overruled decision you are arguing against an
appellate court.  The latter is far more authoritative even if the
precedent is not binding.

I think that you would find that most lawyers would never cite an
overruled decision.
