Washington, DC – The following is a statement from Sally Hubbard, Director of Enforcement Strategy at Open Markets Institute in response to the news that a bipartisan coalition of 50 attorneys general from 48 states and the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico are opening an investigation into Google:
We applaud the 50 state attorneys general for taking this unprecedented stand against Big Tech by uniting to investigate Google’s destruction of competition in search and advertising.
