(Shenzhen) – Chinese telecom giant Huawei filed a motion for summary judgment as part of a process to challenge the constitutionality of the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act, as parts of its continuing efforts to challenge the US government for unfair treatment and speed up the process, Chinese media reported.

Politicians in the US are using the strength of an entire nation to come after a private company, Song Liuping, Huawei’s chief legal officer, told a press conference on Wednesday at the company’s headquarters in Shenzhen, South China’s Guangdong Province.

In its complaint, filed in a US District Court in Plano, Texas, Huawei argues that Section 889 of 2019 NDDA singles out Huawei by name and not only bars US government agencies from buying Huawei equipment and services, but also bars them from contracting with or awarding grants or loans to third parties who buy Huawei equipment and services, which Huawei sees as discriminatory.

The US Commerce Department also added Huawei into the Entity List, which set a dangerous precedent, Song said.
