Huawei Sues US Over Defense Law
With a suit filed in Texas yesterday, the Chinese tech giant is targeting legislation that bars U.S. government agencies from using its technology. Huawei claims the move is unconstitutional because it doesn’t allow for a proper defense, saying Congress acted “as judge, jury and executioner.” The legal salvo is the latest in a feud that escalated after CFO Meng Wanzhou was arrested in Canada in December at Washington’s request.
Can Huawei actually win? Experts say that while it faces an uphill legal battle, the lawsuit is a useful way “to slow down the federal government.”
