Ming was wearing an Italian tuxedo at the time, more generally referred to as a summer undershirt or wife beater. Clearly based on what he hears on the radio about the constitutional right to bare arms it was a clear violation of his civil rights.
Moreover, Ming planned to order a nice plate of linguine and was loath to sacrifice an almost clean shirt to his depredations that always sees the gravy splatter generously as he tucks into the dish.
This was all in service of Ming getting a head start on the celebration of VHC's court victories. After all, in ten more business days the Apple IV hearing will take place. Since the issues are congruent to Apple III which was awarded a Rule 36, Ming expects the same result there. At that point, irrespective of when the Apple III mandate is issued, Apple is up the waterway without a navigation device. It will have lost any and all negotiating leverage and can foolishly request writs of certiorari to no avail. In fact, VHC may not even care to discuss a settlement since all it need do is wait out denial of the requests for writs as the reexams and IPRs go to the elephants' graveyard of the PTAB.
In sum, to descend yet again to the vernacular, Apple can then hold their paw on their posterior as they soil their hat. Meanwhile, Ming in future will limit his custom to those gustatory emporiums less concerned with sartorial niceties.
