US: AG uses EU case for US antitrust case against Google

 |  July 25, 2018

The investigation into Google by Missouri State Attorney General Josh Hawley just got another layer.

Hawley announced on July 25 that his office served a new subpoena on the tech giant to continue the investigation into the company’s business practices.

This new subpoena relates to allegations that the company took improper steps to enhance its market power according to the state attorney general’s office.

Hawley released a statement saying, “If the European Commission’s allegations are true, Google’s conduct may have violated both federal and state antitrust laws… Google’s alleged conduct does not merely undermine free and efficient markets; it undermines fundamental consumer privacy interests by excluding companies that would compete with Google by providing greater protections for users’ personal information.”
