On the last day of President Donald Trump’s tenure, the government Huawei and ZTE ban This time with the other one Aimed at Xiaomi. However, the company was able to obtain a preliminary injunction from the US District Court in the District of Columbia, and removed restrictions on its business a week before the expected effective date.

Under authority Article 1237 of the Defense Accreditation Act, Xiaomi, like many other Chinese companies, was originally unable to acquire goods and services from US suppliers starting next week. But according to Bloomberg, District courts have temporarily suspended the ban, claiming that it was “arbitrary and capricious” and could cause “irreparable damage” to business. Judge Rudolph Contreras said that “the court is somewhat skeptical that the national security interests are actually implicated here” and that it is highly likely that Xiaomi will completely reverse the ban.

Although Xiaomi’s initial victory, the company is still working in court to permanently remove the designation of “communist Chinese military” which is considered illegal. It has been repeated over and over again that the company is a “publicly traded and independently operated” company that offers “private use” products.

Xiaomi has not yet completely beaten the withdrawal, but given the positive outlook, it is unlikely that it will be subject to the same restrictions as Huawei.
