This is The Google on Trial Podcast. ,Thank you for listening and make sure you subscribe to never miss a court room detail. The first day of the United States v. Google trial took place on Tuesday, September 12, 2023, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The trial is expected to last for 10 weeks.The Justice Department's case against Google alleges that the company has violated antitrust law by maintaining its monopoly power in the online search market. The government claims that Google has done this through a variety of anticompetitive practices, including:
  • Striking exclusive deals with Apple and other companies to make Google the default search engine on their devices.
  • Paying billions of dollars to phone makers and other companies to pre-install its search app on their devices.
  • Using its power in the search market to give its own products and services an unfair advantage over rivals.
Google has denied all of the government's allegations. The company's lawyers argue that its search engine is the best in the world and that its market dominance is the result of competition, not anticompetitive conduct.The first day of the trial focused on opening statements from the two sides. The Justice Department's opening statement was delivered by Kenneth Dintzer, a deputy branch director at the department's Antitrust Division. Dintzer argued that Google has "usurped control" of the online search market and that its anticompetitive practices have harmed consumers and businesses.Google's opening statement was delivered by Kent Walker, the company's senior vice president for global affairs. Walker argued that Google's search engine is "the most innovative and popular search engine in the world" and that its market dominance is the result of consumer choice, not anticompetitive conduct.The trial is expected to be closely watched by the tech industry and antitrust experts. The outcome of the trial could have a major impact on Google's business and the future of the online search market.Here are some additional details from the first day of the trial:
  • The Justice Department called two witnesses to testify: Michael Katz, an economist at the University of California, Berkeley, and Christopher Yoo, a law professor at the University of Pennsylvania. Katz testified about the economics of antitrust law, while Yoo testified about the history of antitrust law in the tech industry.
  • Google called one witness to testify: Richard Whitt, a former Google executive who is now a professor at the University of California, Davis. Whitt testified about Google's search engine and its competitive landscape.
  • The judge in the case, Amit Mehta, issued a number of rulings on motions filed by the two sides. He ruled that the Justice Department could introduce evidence of Google's conduct in other markets, such as its advertising business. He also ruled that Google could introduce evidence of the benefits of its search engine.
The trial is expected to continue for the next 10 weeks. The government is expected to call a number of witnesses, including current and former Google employees, economists, and antitrust experts. Google is expected to call a number of witnesses as well, including its own employees, economists, and antitrust experts.The outcome of the trial is uncertain. The Justice Department has a strong case, but Google has a number of experienced lawyers who will be defending the company. The judge in the case, Amit Mehta, is also a respected jurist who is known for his fair and impartial rulings.The trial is a major test for Google and for the Biden administration's antitrust agenda. If the Justice Department is successful, it could force Google to change its business practices and open up the online search market to more competition.Thank you for listening to the United States v.
