Episode 169 — DOJ Files Antitrust Case Against Google
The Department of Justice and eleven state Attorneys General filed an antitrust case against Google in the United States Court for the District of Columbia. DOJ’s filing was hurried at the behest of the Attorney General Bill Barr, and reflects DOJ’s growing focus on high-tech businesses and monopolization conduct. DOJ’s case joins a long list of high-profile monopolization cases, including Microsoft, AT&T and IBM. DOJ’s filing represents the most significant antitrust enforcement action against big technology companies since DOJ’s 1998 filing against Microsoft.
In this Episode, Mike Volkov reviews DOJ’s case and provides relevant analysis.
