Huawei Sues US Government Over Ban on Its Products

Chinese telecoms equipment maker Huawei Technologies on Thursday confirmed it is suing the US government over a section of a defence bill passed into law last year that restricted its business in the United States.
“The US 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,” Huawei Rotating Chairman Guo Ping said in a statement.”This ban not only is unlawful, but also restricts Huawei from engaging in fair competition, ultimately harming US consumers.We look forward to the court’s verdict, and trust that it will benefit both Huawei and the American people.””Lifting the NDAA ban will give the US Government the flexibility it needs to work with Huawei and solve real security issues,” Guo said.
In its lawsuit, Huawei said its “equipment and services are subject to advanced security procedures, and no backdoors, implants, or other intentional security vulnerabilities have been documented in any of the more than 170 countries in the world where Huawei equipment and services are used.”The privately owned firm has embarked on a public relations and legal offensive as Washington lobbies allies to abandon Huawei when building 5G mobile networks, centring on a 2017 Chinese law requiring companies cooperate with national intelligence work.
Founder and Chief Executive Ren Zhengfei No proof,The NDDA bans the US government from doing business with Huawei or compatriot peer ZTE Corp or from doing business with any company that has equipment from the two firms as a “substantial or essential component” of their system.In its lawsuit, filed in US District Court in the Eastern District of Texas, Huawei argues that the section of the law is illegal because it could sharply limit the company’s ability to do business in the United States despite no proof of wrongdoing.
Separately, the lawsuit also alleges that Huawei has been denied due process and that Congress, by stripping Huawei of US commercial opportunities, has violated the “separation of powers” portion of the constitution by doing the work of the courts.UPHILL BATTLE:Some legal experts, however, said Huawei’s lawsuit is likely to be dismissed because US courts are reluctant to second-guess national security determinations by other branches of government.The lawsuit “will be an uphill battle because Congress has broad authority to protect us from perceived national security threats,” said Franklin Turner, a government contracts lawyer at McCarter English.In November 2018, a federal appeals court rejected a similar lawsuit filed by Russian cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Lab, which was challenging a ban on the use of the company’s software in US government networks.
The Texas court hearing Huawei’s case will not be bound by that decision, but will likely adopt its reasoning because of the similarities in the two disputes, said Steven Schwinn, a professor at the John Marshall Law School in Chicago.”I don’t see how (Huawei) can really escape that result,” said Schwinn.Retribution:The legal action and public relations outreach compare with a more restrained response in December emphasising “trust in justice” when its chief financial officer, Sabrina Meng Wanzhou, was arrested in Vancouver at US request.The United States has accused Meng – Ren’s daughter – of bank and wire fraud related to breaches of trade sanctions against Iran.
Meng appeared in court on Wednesday during which her lawyer expressed concern that the allegations have a political character, raising US President Donald Trump’s comments on the case.Separately, Meng, who is fighting extradition, is suing Canada’s government for procedural wrongs in her arrest.The case had strained relations with China, which this week accused two arrested Canadians of stealing state secrets in a move widely seen as retribution for Meng’s arrest.While Meng is under house arrest in Vancouver, it is unclear where the two Canadians are being detained in China.Sources previously told Reuters that at least one of the Canadians did not have access to legal representation.Change of tuneRen met international media for the first time in several years in mid-January, calling US President Donald Trump “great” and refraining from commenting directly on Meng’s case.Shifting tone, Ren in mid-February said Meng’s arrest was politically motivated and “not acceptable”.Long before Trump initiated a trade war with China, Huawei’s activities were under scrutiny by US authorities, according to interviews with 10 people familiar with the Huawei probes and documents related to the investigations seen by Reuters.

Microsoft’s next in-house Xbox exclusive, Crackdown 3, is soon headed to Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs.With its slated February 15 release fast approaching, its debut marks the end of a lengthy development, tied to its ambitious cloud-backed action-adventure gameplay.The highlight of Crackdown 3 is its “Wrecking Zone,” hosting five-versus-five multiplayer battles, with physics backed by Microsoft’s cloud technologies.However, new details have surfaced via the game’s official Discord, now a cause of concern among its community.As spotted on the Crackdown 3 Discord channel (via Reddit), Microsoft’s official “MSFT Crackdown” account has provided further insight into its multiplayer mode.With players unable to play with friends during its pre-release tests, it has confirmed Crackdown 3 will also not support friend parties at launch.

Wrecking Zone does not support parties and will not at launch.MSFT Crackdown later stated it has no information on if or when parties will be implemented.Parties are not supported in Wrecking Zone. I don’t have any info on if/when they might be implemented.For a title heavily dependent on its multiplayer ambitions, a lack of multiplayer parties proves controversial in 2019. It’s a common multiplayer feature for Xbox One titles, bound to cause confusion and frustration on launch day.In the meantime, players will have to seemingly rely on the game’s randomized matchmaking or two-player campaign. Microsoft Studios Senior Creative Director, Joe Staten, has confirmed a lack of friend support at launch, recommending players “stay tuned” for post-launch plans.Thanks for the tip, . Crackdown 3’s official account confirmed that party lobbies will arrive in a “post launch” title update, although no time frame was offered.
.Agents, we know you’re eager to play #Wrecking Zone with friends and we’ll be adding Xbox Live party functionality in an upcoming title update along with other post-launch content. Thank you for your patience and please stay tuned here for more info soon!February 11, 2019.It’s unclear why Microsoft overlooked multiplayer parties in Crackdown 3 when already struggling to gain traction ahead of release.
Speculatively, latency issues may sprout with cloud-backed physics over distance, limiting players geographically as a result. Alternatively, this could be a simple oversight amid numerous delays since 2014.For more thoughts on Crackdown 3, don’t miss our hands-on preview from early February. Crackdown 3 is now available for preorder ahead of its February 15, 2019 release.While priced at $60, Xbox Game Pass members can play on launch day for $10 per month.Crackdown 3 preview: Early impressions of Microsoft’s next Xbox exclusiveSee at AmazonThis post may contain affiliate links.
