It’s high noon in Texas, where a posse of state attorneys general have filed one of two, multistate complaints against search and advertising giant Google. The first was submitted by Texas and nine other states alleging antitrust violations in Google’s display ads business; a second filed in Washington DC by 38 attorneys general focuses on Google’s alleged illegal search monopolization. And at the heart of one of the lawsuits is the allegation that Google colluded with Facebook in a secret deal with a “Star Wars” themed code name. Meanwhile, professional European ice skaters will be taking to the rink with renewed enthusiasm over the holidays, following an EU court decision that’s likely to resonate throughout professional sporting bodies.
