Just today, Huawei announced that it has filed a complaint in a U.S. federal court to challenge the constitutionality of section 889 of the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). For Huawei, this action seeks a declaratory judgment that the restrictions targeting the company are unconstitutional, and a permanent injunction against these restrictions. “The U.S. Congress has repeatedly failed to produce any evidence to support its restrictions on Huawei products. We are compelled to take this legal action as a proper and last resort. This ban not only is unlawful, but also restricts Huawei from engaging in fair competition, ultimately harming U.S. consumers. We look forward to the court’s verdict, and trust that it will benefit both Huawei and the American people. If this law is set aside, as it should be, Huawei can bring more advanced technologies to the United States and help it build the best 5G networks.…
