The Chinese tech company Huawei filed a lawsuit against the US Department of Commerce on Friday alleging that it has "unlawfully withheld or unreasonably delayed agency action" on unspecified telecommunications equipment that it seized in 2017, Bloomberg reported.
In the lawsuit, Huawei reportedly said that it had sent the equipment to be tested in a California lab in July 2017. The tech giant said the equipment was taken by the US government as it was being returned to China due to uncertainty over whether the equipment required an export license, according to Bloomberg.
Huawei reportedly argued that the equipment didn't need an export license and that it had given the US all of the information it asked for. The company said in the lawsuit that the US has not yet come to a decision on whether the equipment can be returned to China, according to Bloomberg.
