Some US States Slam Google With New Antitrust Lawsuit

group of states led by Texas filed a separate antitrust suit at google

SAN FRANCISCO – Dozens of US states filed a new lawsuit against Google accusing the internet giant of abusing its internet search dominance to eliminate competition.

“Google’s anticompetitive actions have protected its general search monopolies and excluded rivals, depriving consumers of the benefits of competitive choices, forestalling innovation, and undermining new entry or expansion,” said Colorado attorney general Phil Weiser.

The suit by antitrust enforcers from 38 US states and territories is in line with but goes beyond a case filed by the US Justice Department against Google earlier this year.

The suit came a day after a group of states led by Texas filed a separate antitrust suit and asked to be consolidated with the federal case against Google.
