United States file major lawsuit against Google
The United States government and eleven states have filed an anti-trust lawsuit against tech giant Google.
The search engine company has been accused of an illegal monopoly over search advertising by stifling competition and reducing consumer choice.
One business contract includes a billion-dollar agreement with Apple to put Google as the default search engine on iPhones.
The legal case marks the government’s most significant antitrust case since a Microsoft lawsuit in 1998.
A Google executive said the company will potentially file motions to challenge the suit ahead of a judicial trial.
