Also joining the US government’s complaint will be 11 states including Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, South Carolina and Texas, according to public court records.”
Market Watch reported, “The Justice Department is expected to formally sue Alphabet Inc.’s Google for antitrust violations Tuesday, the first major action against Big Tech for its staggering market power and values. Sources told MarketWatch that charges were expected this week.”

Reaction from Senator Josh Hawley, who posted on Twitter: “NEW — Sen. Hawley on the @TheJusticeDept announcement of a lawsuit against @Google: “Today’s lawsuit is the most important antitrust case in a generation…” But this is just a first step. Hawley will continue to fight for legislative solutions to end the Big Tech tyranny.”
