Huawei Wins Partial Injunction in Motorola Case

By Todd

Reuters is reporting that China's Huawei Technologies Co on Tuesday won a federal court order barring Motorola Solutions Inc from disclosing a variety of confidential Huawei information to rival Nokia Siemens Networks.

But Motorola Solutions said it was pleased that the judge denied Huawei's request to block its $1.2 billion sale of its networks business to Nokia Siemens.

Huawei had sued last month to block the sale, demanding that terms be altered to protect its trade secrets and intellectual property rights.

In her ruling, U.S. District Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman in Chicago said Huawei had shown a "reasonable likelihood of success" on the merits of its claim that Motorola Solutions and Nokia Siemens might misappropriate trade secrets, and that "irreparable competitive harm" could result.

We will attempt to find a copy of the injunction and post it.
