This time, though, it's in court for a different reason: It has accused U.S. rival Micron of infringing its patents on memory technology, and has been granted an early win in the form of a temporary injunction against the company.
"In today's environment, because of the tensions between China and the United States", he added, local judges may feel more comfortable granting an injunction knowing they would "face less pressure from the higher courts".
