FTC Said Poised to Finish Google Antitrust Probe in Weeks

The U.S. Federal Trade Commission is pushing to conclude its antitrust investigation of Google Inc. in the coming weeks, four people familiar with the matter said.

The agency’s staff will present its findings to the FTC’s five commissioners by mid-September and probably recommend whether to sue the company for hurting competition through its Internet dominance or suggest a basis for settlement, said the people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the progress of the probe is confidential.
