A U.S. judge on Friday ordered Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi be temporarily removed from a government blacklist that barred American investment in the company. Xiaomi was one of nine firms classified by the Pentagon as “Communist Chinese military companies.”

Xiaomi — which overtook Apple last year to become the world’s third-largest smartphone manufacturer — said Washington’s moves were “incorrect” and had “deprived the company of legal due process.” in January, filing an appeal against the blacklisting.
