Huawei Asks US Court To Declare 'National Security' Ban Unconstitutional

It's a testament to the American legal system that even companies like Huawei, which built an empire on stolen technology and shady anti-competitive practices, have a right to seek redress of grievances in US courts.

The Chinese telecoms firm on Wednesday filed a motion in a Texas court seeking a summary judgment on the constitutionality of the Trump Administration's decision to prohibit US companies and government agencies from using Huawei equipment due to 'national security' concerns. The motion is the latest development in a lawsuit that Huawei first filed back in March challenging Section 889 of the National Defence Authorisation Act (NDAA) - signed into law back in August - which barred federal agencies and their contractors from buying Huawei equipment.

That prohibition has since been expanded by executive order to cover most American companies.

The lawsuit was filed in the US District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, which covers the headquarters of Huawei's American subsidiary in Plano, according to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
