The DOJ is reportedly prepping an antitrust suit against Google over its ad business - TechCrunch

Quick Summary:

The Department of Justice is preparing a second major antitrust suit against Google, according to new reporting by Bloomberg.

The DOJ could sue Google “as soon as next month,” according to the report, which details that the lawsuit will be filed in federal court in either Washington or New York.

The first Google antitrust suit was filed during Trump’s tenure, but the Biden administration inherited that framework — a rare bit of policy continuity between the Trump and Biden White House —and is still working to hold the tech giant accountable for the anti-competitive behavior that cemented its dominance over the last decade.
