Due to advertising practices: – US Department of Justice files a lawsuit against Google


Search engine operator Google has been targeted by the US Department of Justice for its advertising practices. The US agency filed a lawsuit against Google on Tuesday because the company, which belongs to parent company Alphabet, allegedly abused its supremacy in the digital advertising business, according to a court document.

Google has engaged in anti-competitive and illegal practices to remove any threat to its dominance over digital advertising technologies, the Department cited in its antitrust complaint. Eight states have joined the lawsuit, including Google’s home state of California.

Second antitrust complaint against Google
The lawsuit is the second antitrust complaint against Google. The Justice Department lawsuit, filed in 2020, focuses on Google’s monopoly on web searches. This will go to court in September.

Just last week the media reported that Google’s parent company Alphabet would cut thousands of jobs. Around 12,000 jobs will be lost worldwide. This corresponds to about six percent of the working population.
