 U.S. says Huawei lawyers prior work at Justice Department poses conflict

(Reuters) - U.S. prosecutors said on Friday that Huawei Technologies Co Ltd lawyer James Cole's prior work at the Department of Justice created a conflict of interest that should disqualify him from acting for the Chinese company in its fraud case against the U.S. government.

Prosecutors made the argument in a filing in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn, New York.
