Huawei preparing lawsuit against US federal ban - report

Monday 4 March 2019 | 14:33 CET | News
Huawei will be filing a lawsuit against the US government, for banning federal agencies from using the company's products, the New York Times reported, citing sources familiar with the matter. The lawsuit is expected to challenge a section of a defense spending authorization law that was approved last year. The provision blocks executive agencies from using telecom equipment made by Huawei and another Chinese company, ZTE. The Huawei suit is likely to argue that singling out a person or group for punishment without trial is a legislative act that is forbidden under the Constitution.
