Huawei, guarding US business, says Verizon violated patents
BEIJING (AP) - Chinese tech giant Huawei has filed a lawsuit accusing U.S. phone carrier Verizon of violating its patents, broadening efforts to defend its business in the United States amid government sanctions. Huawei accuses Verizon of violating 12 patents on optical transmission, digital communications and other technology. Verizon calls the lawsuit a “PR stunt." The U.S. federal lawsuit was filed in Texas. In separate cases, Huawei also is challenging U.S. government measures to limit its access to the American market on security grounds. The company faces sanctions imposed by Washington last year that block most access to U.S. components and technology on security grounds.
