US states file custom complaint against Google

A group of US states led by Texas has filed an amended complaint against Google. In it, the tech company is accused of coercive tactics and violating antitrust laws in the advertising market.

Several lawsuits are pending against the tech company, including one from the US Department of Justice for monopolistic practices. 36 US states already went to court this summer for unfair competition and maintaining a monopoly position in the app market. Google would prefer the Play Store over other app stores.

In the new charge cites a secret Google program called Project Bernanke from 2013 that allegedly used third-party bid data to optimize its own ad buying.

Neither Google’s parent company Alphabet nor the Texas Attorney General’s office immediately responded to requests for comment on the lawsuit, Reuters reports.
