Texas vs. Google: Another US lawsuit against internet giants

In the United States, another internet giant has been sued by the state. Texas and nine other states accused Google of antitrust violations in connection with its advertising business on Wednesday. “Google has repeatedly used its monopoly power to control pricing and collude to manipulate auctions,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said on Facebook.

Google rejected the allegations in an initial reaction. The shares of the US group increased their losses in late trading after the lawsuit became known.

Paxton had already joined a lawsuit by the US Department of Justice against the search engine operator in October. It's about Google's business conduct towards rivals. In total, the federal and state governments in the USA have recently filed four lawsuits against large Internet companies.
