Michael Whinston testifies on behalf of DOJ in United States v. Google LLC

The Department of Justice (DOJ) retained Michael Whinston in United States v. Google LLC, a civil antitrust suit against Google alleging that Google violated Section 2 of the Sherman Act by foreclosing competition for internet search. The DOJ claims Google did this by denying general search engine competitors access to vital distribution channels and scale, thereby thwarting innovation and harming consumers and advertisers. The case has been described as the most important federal antitrust lawsuit in more than 20 years.

Dr. Whinston testified three times over multiple days and was the final witness in the 10-week trial. A decision in the case is expected in 2024.
