Google denies allegations in DOJ antitrust complaint

Google formally responded to the Department of Justice’s antitrust complaint against it Monday night, denying or partially denying nearly all of the 200 allegations in the lawsuit.

The filing is Google’s first major legal response to the wave of challenges it has faced over the past few months.

Since the DOJ first unveiled the charges it was pursuing against Google, two separate groups of state attorneys general have also filed cases challenging the company’s control over search and advertising technology.

The group focused on search has asked for their case to be combined with the federal lawsuit.
