No, there is no way.
It isnt fair
The injustice gets worse - all those with a game in progress with the banned player, will get the game scored as a win. But in cases where the banned player has multiple games (ie most cases) it will depend on the order that the site gurus result the games as to how many points you will get. If your game is resulted first you will get far more points than if yours is last, as the banned players rating will progressively lower like someone being timed out by his entire opponent list one by one. I was playing a guy rated 2100. The first guy given a win when he was banned got 32 points. By the time my game was resulted, the banned players rating was 1425, so I got one!!
Not that any of us deserved any points, but it does add some weight to coquettes 'it all evens out the end' point of view
