Looks like ONT has become a threat.
Illumina used to scoff at them.

Competition is good for customers. Illumina is a one-trick pony and their technology is headed to the glue factory.

Hopefully the fact that they are not a US company will shield them somewhat.

That's blatantly not true, take the recent IBS V Illumina case as an example.

Ever heard of David V Goliath?

While it is likely that this is Illumina's tactic to stall or distract ONT, WashU being one of plaintiffs does give this claim a little bit of credibility.
