Duly chastised; you're right. However, as only a nominal defendant, Apple isn't directly on the line of fire, this is very much targeted at the executives, so the rest of my point stands.  The shareholders aren't suing themselves, they're suing the executives.
If there is a war on Christmas then it's pretty safe to say that Christmas is winning.  It's the biggest holiday of the year and isn't going anywhere.

"Sorry, but there's nothing I can do about that, and I think that's an unreasonable and intolerant thing to say.  My tolerance of you does not extend to your intolerance of others."
