Huawei said it is “disappointed” after a federal judge in Texas ruled against a lawsuit it filed challenging a U.S. law that bans federal agencies and contractors from purchasing its products.
The decision, handed down Tuesday by judge Amos Mazzant at East Texas District Court, ruled in favor of the U.S. government, concluding that Congress acted within its powers by including the restriction in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
“While we understand the paramount significance of national security, the approach taken by the U.S. government in the 2019 NDAA provides a false sense of protection while undermining Huawei’s constitutional rights. We will continue to consider further legal options,” a Huawei spokesman said.
Huawei filed the lawsuit in March 2019 saying restrictions in its terms of trade as set out by the 2019 NDAA, were unconstitutional. The 2019 NDAA also targets ZTE, another Chinese telecom provider.
