A federal judge on Friday said the Justice Department can sue Alphabet Inc.’s Google in Virginia, batting down efforts by the tech giant to change the venue of the litigation to New York. 

US District Judge Leonie Brinkema in Alexandria said there are “just enough” differences between the antitrust case by the government and a similar ongoing case in New York to justify keeping the case in Virginia.
