Texas Beats Google’s Push to Toss Out Ad Tech Antitrust Suit

An antitrust suit by state attorneys general accusing Alphabet Inc.’s Google of monopolizing the technology underlying online advertising can move forward, a New York federal judge ruled.

Judge P. Kevin Castel said Tuesday the bulk of the states’ antitrust lawsuit can proceed, though he dismissed one claim against the search giant. Google sought to dismiss the case, arguing that all of the conduct that the states target is legal.
