On October 20, 2020, the Department of Justice (DOJ) filed its much-anticipated lawsuit against Google. The case is the most high-profile antitrust challenge since the Microsoft case more than 20 years ago. The Justice Department has alleged that Google monopolized the search and search advertising markets, inhibiting rivals such as Bing, DuckDuckGo, and Yahoo from succeeding and thereby ultimately harming competition and consumers. This distinguished panel debated the merits of the DOJ’s antitrust claims, discussed the potential parallels to the Microsoft action, and opined on the government’s likelihood of success at trial.
