Apparently Huawei thinks Verizon owes it a billion bucks in unpaid patent licence fees, but a US Senator want to block its ability to sue.

The Senator in question is Marco Rubio, who has form with Huawei as you can see from the tweet below. According to Reuters Rubio filed legislation yesterday designed to block Huawei from seeking damages in US patent courts. The move was an apparent reaction to Huawei getting in touch with Verizon to demand the US operator cough up for 230 of its patents that it used without paying for the privilege.
