A group of 35 US states and 3 US territories sued Alphabet Inc's Google on Thursday for illegally arranging its search results to push out smaller rivals. This represents a third government antitrust lawsuit in less than two months, this time from a bipartisan coalition of state attorneys general.

US Lawyer Mark Brnovich confirmed his office joined a bipartisan coalition of 38 attorneys general in filing an antitrust lawsuit against Google adding that Arizona played a key role in the development of this investigation.

"Google’s quest to build the monopoly has led to less privacy, stifled innovation, and reduced choice for consumers. I’m not interested in micromanaging businesses, but consumer privacy must be protected. Our bipartisan antitrust lawsuit against Google is targeted to stop illegal conduct and improve consumer welfare," he stated.
