15 Nov Missouri to Investigate Google for Antitrust Violations
Last Monday, the office of Missouri’s Attorney General Josh Hawley said that they will be investigating Google for alleged violations of the state’s antitrust and consumer protection laws.
A subpoena had already been sent to the search giant, demanding it to provide information and documents on its business practices. However, Google will also be allowed 30 or 60 days to comply, in which it could contest the subpoena.
Meanwhile, Google spokesman Patrick Lenihan said that they have yet to receive the subpoena, but assured that the company have always had strong privacy protections in place for their users.
