BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

US startup accuses Huawei exec of involvement in trade secrets theft: WSJ

Huawei deputy chairman Eric Xu

(Reuters) — A Silicon Valley chip startup has accused a top executive of China’s Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., Deputy Chairman Eric Xu, of participating in a conspiracy to steal its trade secrets, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday, citing court documents.

The allegations were made in a lawsuit set for trial on June 3 in federal court in the Eastern District of Texas, in which CNEX Labs Inc. claimed that Huawei engaged in a multiyear conspiracy to steal the company’s solid-state drive computer storage technology, including with the help of a Chinese university, the WSJ reported.

Huawei said in a statement on Thursday the allegations against Mr. Xu were “groundless.”

CNEX did not immediately respond to a Reuters’ request for comment.

California-based CNEX is developing technology to enhance the performance of solid-state drives in data centers and has been in a dispute with Huawei since 2017.

It had accused Huawei of enlisting a Chinese university professor working on a research project to improperly access the startup’s technology.
