Motorola Solutions and Huawei Technologies announced on 13 April that they have agreed to settle all pending litigation.
Motorola has agreed to withdraw its claims and dismiss, with prejudice, Huawei as a defendant in the Motorola v Lemko litigation pending in the Chicago federal district court.
In turn, Huawei has agreed to drop its lawsuit against Motorola Solutions and Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN). Motorola will transfer its commercial agreements with Huawei to NSN for a fee and allow NSN to receive and use Huawei confidential information to service the networks Motorola deployed worldwide using Huawei’s technologies.
The dispute stems from the commercial relationship the two companies entered into in 2000 under which Motorola resold certain Huawei products with the Motorola name. Huawei objected when Motorola proposed to sell that division to NSN.
