Global Competition Review – ICLE Senior Scholar Lazar Radic was quoted by Global Competition Review in a story about a recent federal district court ruling in an antitrust case brought against Google by 16 states. You can read full story (behind a subscriber firewall) here.

Lazar Radic, a legal researcher at the European University Institute, said that the ruling should give Google some “cautious optimism”. Despite the three counts continuing on, Radic noted that these are early days.

“There is still significant space for Google to contest these moving forward, and win,” Radic told GCR USA.

He noted that the parties can still dispute whether Google was vigorously competing or attempting to monopolise and whether the company coerced buyers into purchasing its ad server and exchange services together.
