FTC staff preparing recommendation that the US sue Google for antitrust violations
The Federal Trade Commission, reports the New York Times, is raising the ante in its antitrust confrontation with Google as the agency’s staff is preparing a recommendation that the government sue the search giant.
The staff’s recommendation is contained in a draft memo that is being shared with the five FTC commissioners, two people familiar with the inquiry told the Times.
The memo is still being edited and changes could be made, but these are mostly fine-tuning and will not alter the conclusions reached after an investigation that began more than a year ago, said these people.
