  • The US Department of Justice has officially filed a lawsuit against Google.
  • The DOJ claims Google created a digital ad market that unfairly favors its own products.
  • The DOJ is joined by eight states in its complaint.

Google found itself in a lot of legal trouble in 2022. For example, it was sued for reportedly collecting location data even after users disabled it. It also was sued for reportedly gathering the biometric data of people in Texas without their explicit consent. For 2023, it seems like the company will continue to struggle with legal issues as it was just sued for its digital ad market.

The US Department of Justice (DOJ) has officially filed a lawsuit against Google, according to TechCrunch. In the suit, the DOJ argues that the search giant has a monopolistic grip over the digital ad market that allows it to unfairly favor its own products. Joined in the suit are eight states that include New York, California, Colorado, and others.
