Washington: The United States Justice Department is poised to sue Alphabet Inc.’s Google on Tuesday, for allegedly violating antitrust laws by abusing its power as the world’s largest search engine, according to The Indian Express.
The move comes after months of investigations by federal and state antitrust enforcers seeking to check the power of the massive technology firm and parallel probes into other giants such as Amazon, Facebook and Apple.
There are reports that the US government could force changes in business practices or break off segments of the Google empire.
The Justice Department had no immediate comment but scheduled a briefing for media later Tuesday.
Google did not immediately respond to an AFP request for comment.
