New York (The Verge) — Google under antitrust investigation by 50 attorneys general theverge.com/2019/9/9/20857….
California and Alabama are the only two state attorneys general staying out of the probe.
At Monday’s press conference in front of the Supreme Court, Paxton said that Google “dominates all aspects of advertising on the internet and searching on the internet,” The Washington Postreported.
“We applaud the 50 state attorneys general for taking this unprecedented stand against Big Tech by uniting to investigate Google’s destruction of competition in search and advertising,” the Open Markets Institute said in a statement. “We haven’t seen a major monopolization case against a tech giant since Microsoft was sued in 1998. Today’s announcement marks the start of a new era.” — Makena Kelly/@verge
