Huawei U.S. lawsuit 2026

News regarding Huawei suggests that the U.S. criminal lawsuit against the Chinese OEM for misleading banks has now shifted to the 2026 trial. After a period of silence, the federal judge scheduled the respective case for the January 2026 timeline.

Case Beginning:

U.S. has always considered Huawei as a potential threat to the nation’s security. In 2018, the American government claimed that the Chinese firm had misled and cheated the native banks regarding its business dealings in sanctioned countries like Iran.

The lawmakers further add that Huawei even formed a conspiracy to steal intellectual property from U.S. companies. Since 2018, the U.S.-China relation affecting case has been in the run. It even resulted in the detainment of Huawei CFO – Meng Wanzhou (daughter of the company’s founder) under a U.S. warrant in Vancouver, Canada.

Although these charges were dismissed in the 2021 court hearing. The tech giant pleaded not guilty several times. Yet the broader case is still pending against Huawei.

Present Scene:

In the current scenario, the Brooklyn (New York) court judge – Ann Donnelly asked the parties if they would like to settle this subject. In response, U.S. Assistant Attorney Alexander Solomon said:

“The reason we’re here today is that the settlement discussions ended in an impasse. We think it would be prudent to schedule a trial date.”

Adding a conclusion to the discussion, the judge said that a perfect date for the Huawei-U.S. lawsuit trial to begin would be the beginning of January 2026. Solomon cited that this case could take around four to six months.

However, the lawmen from Huawei declined to estimate the time graph. Both parties agreed to serve the case in two separate trials to ease the matter’s understanding.
