Huawei Technologies Ltd.'s lawsuit, announced Thursday, asks a federal court to reject as unconstitutional a portion of this year's USA military appropriations act that bars the government and its contractors from using Huawei equipment.
Huawei's ire is focused on Section 889 of the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
"This ban not only is unlawful but also restricts Huawei from engaging in fair competition, ultimately harming U.S. consumers", Huawei's Rotating Chairman Guo Ping said in the statement. Prosecutors allege that Skycom is a hidden subsidiary of Huawei, while Huawei maintains they are two independent companies.

The action signals a more aggressive response from the company toward its USA accusers, who have been trying to persuade other countries to ban Huawei gear from crucial fifth-generation communications networks.
Much of the USA concern is rooted in fears that China, through Huawei, may export the high-tech security state that is accelerating under President Xi Jinping.
