Google’s Attempt to Move Lawsuit to California Refused by Texas Judge

21 May 2021

    A judge in Texas denied on Thursday for Google’s antitrust lawsuit to be moved to California, where the company’s headquarters are located. The request was made by Alphabet not only due to the fact that the company is fighting similar accusations in the state, but also as part of a claim that having the case in California would facilitate the process of witness’ testifying.


    According to the Judge Sean Jordan of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Google’s rationale and other arguments were not sufficient and caused the inquiry's rejection.


    "Google has failed to meet its burden to establish that the Northern District of California is a clearly more convenient venue for the ... litigation than the Eastern District of Texas”, the judge commented.


    In the last month of 2020, several accusations from other states, besides Texas, were already made against Google, accusing the tech giant of breaking antitrust laws in dominating the placing of digital advertising. Apart from the Texas case, Google is currently facing two other government antitrust lawsuits.
