US fights back against Huawei's constitutional challenge to sales ban

A U.S. law prohibiting federal agencies from buying Huawei Technologies Co. equipment isn’t legislative punishment but serves to protect against China gaining a strategic foothold in those agencies’ networks, the government said.

Justice Department lawyers on Wednesday asked a federal judge in Sherman, Texas, to throw out a lawsuit Huawei filed against the U.S. government in March. The Chinese telecom giant sued to invalidate a law Congress passed last year barring government purchases of its products.
