Microsoft sued the U.S. Customs and Border Protection office in federal court Thursday for allegedly failing to enforce a trade panel's import ban on Motorola Mobility smartphones. The U.S. International Trade Commission imposed the ban in May 2012 after ruling that Google's unit had violated Microsoft patents. In its suit, Microsoft says that Customs officials have looked the other way even though Google has not addressed the problem. Google said Customs officials have interpreted the ITC ruling to give Motorola more time to resolve the issue.
