According to Reuters, Huawei Technologies Company, Inc. filed suit against the U.S. Department of Commerce on Friday the 21st claiming the seizure of telecommunications equipment sent from China to the US and back to China was not covered under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR).

Specifically, Huawei claims the equipment was not subject to a license requirement because it did not fit into a controlled category (ECCN) as the hardware was being returned to China from which it came.

The equipment seized is a computer server and ethernet switch sent to California for testing and then seized on the shipment back to China.

Will post more updates as they become available.
