En previous occasions we have reported about the USA vs Google case and how this has become the most representative case in terms of free competition worldwide. The lawsuit was filed two months ago, it only remained to establish the date on which the trial against the technology giant Alphabet Inc. will take place. Thus, as confirmed by sources from Reuters, the American Department of Justice has suggested September 12, 2023 as the tentative date.
District Judge Amit Mehta suggested this date during a conference and representatives from both parties did not object to the decision. He also noted that both parties expect the Discovery be completed in March 2022, leaving other preparatory issues to be resolved before the beginning of 2023.
This case is particular because there are two lawsuits regarding the same controversy, the one that aims to declare that Google would be engaging in anti-competitive practices through its search engine and the one that is focused on Google's efforts to extend its domain to devices such as speakers. , televisions and even smart cars. The first is being promoted mainly by the Department of Justice while the second by a group of forty-six states that have filed suit as litigation partners.
