Justice Department’s antitrust lawsuit against Google’s Alphabet Inc proposed a trial date of Sept. 12, 2023.
The litigation by the Justice Department focused on Google’s search and search ads, while the state case filed this week contained what it said was Google’s attempts to expand its supremacy to products such as headphones, televisions, and even smart cars.
The U.S. Hearing Judge On Friday, the Justice Department’s antitrust lawsuit against Google’s Alphabet Inc proposed trial date of Sept. 12, 2023.
The U.S. During a status meeting, District Judge Amit Mehta recommended the date, and counsel for the two sides did not object. Mehta noted that it appeared that the two parties expected the discovery to be concluded in March 2022, with other pre-trial matters not being resolved until the beginning of 2023.
“It seems to me that we’re looking at a trial, a potential trial, in late summer, early fall of 2023,” said Mehta before proposing a future trial date for Sept. 12, 2023.
The two parties have initiated the process of at least partly consolidating the government’s case with a complaint brought against Google on Thursday by 38 states and territories, primarily in terms of pre-trial matters.
The situation of the state is larger than the Divisions of Justice. The litigation by the Justice Department focused on Google’s search and search ads, while the state case filed this week contained what it said was Google’s attempts to expand its supremacy to products such as headphones, televisions, and even smart cars.
Google has refuted corruption.
California, which along with Wisconsin and Michigan, joins the cast of the Justice Department, suggested that it would have to make reports to third parties but offered no specifics. “I know we have a separate investigative file,” Paula Blizzard, an attorney for the Attorney General’s Office in California, said.
Google attorneys and the Department of Justice also appeared close to wrapping up aspects of an injunction shielding business-sensitive documents that aided in the prosecution of the government as well as on a scheduling order. Next week, both will be done.
The next hearing on status was scheduled for Jan. 21.
