Huawei Aims To Fight Back Against U.S. With Lawsuit
HUAWEI PLANS TO TAKE ITS PUSH-BACK AGAINST THE US GOVERNMENT TO A NEW LEVEL THIS WEEK
(CNN) – Huawei plans to take its push-back against the U.S. government to a new level this week.
The embattled Chinese tech company intends to file a lawsuit against the American government over a law that bans U.S. federal agencies from buying Huawei products, according to reports by the New York Times and the Financial Times citing unidentified sources.
Huawei declined to comment on the matter.
In its lawsuit, Huawei will claim that the National Defense Authorization Act violates the U.S. Constitution by singling out a single individual or group for punishment without trial, according to the reports.
The legislation, which was passed in August, specifically forbids government agencies from using technology from Huawei and its smaller Chinese rival ZTE.
It’s the latest twist in the clash between the U.S. and China over technology.
