DoJ, AGs to discuss Google antitrust case - report

Thursday, 24. September 2020 14:13

The United States Department of Justice and state attorney generals will meet later in the day to confer about the potential antitrust case against Alphabet's Google, The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.

According to the people familiar with the matter, the probe is to investigate whether the tech giant abused its role as a major internet researcher and online advertisement rules, but its future remains uncertain due to political tensions between attorneys ahead of the November presidential elections.

Google has recently been sued by the state of Arizona for allegedly collecting users' information without consent and at a California federal court for tracking subscribers' internet activity.
