US power technology group AMSC today revealed that the latest stage in its legal battle with wind turbine giant Sinovel is due to be heard in China's highest court next week.

China’s Supreme People’s Court has scheduled a hearing for 29 May to review the jurisdiction of AMSC’s software copyright infringement cases against Sinovel – formerly its biggest customer – and Guotong Electric, another firm involved in the proceedings, the US company said today.

The hearing involves two cases in AMSC’s long-running, multi-pronged legal battle with the Chinese wind turbine giant over claims of intellectual property theft and breach of contract.
