Well, the Dolphin emulator was an open source project that was developed while the Wii was still on store shelves and they failed to react. Not much they can do provided it is proper reverse engineering of the console without the use of Nintendo code.

If anything it is the CEMU emulator is what people need to worry about, as it has developed rapidly as a closed source project and is effectively selling new builds on a Patreon that earns over $16,000 per month. It is a much easier target for Nintendo if they wanted to try anything legal.

I think it's timing more than anything. Dolphin started on Wii emulation 2 years after the release of the console and by the time it could boot and run Wii games, it had already sold 50 million units. Plus back in 08-09; emulation wasn't as big as it is today (From my experience at least).

I don't think Nintendo care much for Cemu because ever since the Switch launched; they've had a "lets forget" attitude about the Wii U. I wouldn't be surprised is Yuzu takes off and goes the way of Cemu but at the same time, I would expect Nintendo to try and block it considering how young the Switch is to the market and how quick Nintendo have been to issue C+Ds in the past

They can bark all they like but providing it doesn't contain any code that belongs to them there is nothing they can do.

The only emulator in history that was stopped in its tracks was Bleem, and that is because they were providing the console's bios with it. Other PS1 emus soon came out, but you had to find the bios yourself.

An emulator doesn't do anything illegal, it's what you choose to use it for. Providing it isn't packed with any roms or code there's nothing the owners can do.
