This is the United States versus Google podcast, and this is your Google Antitrust Trial Update for Today, October 10, 2023
Top Stories and Headlines from the Past 24 Hours:
Justice Department can post exhibits online after Google review. Judge Amit Mehta ruled on Monday that the Justice Department can post exhibits from the Google antitrust trial online after they have been shown in court. Google will have three hours to review the exhibits for confidentiality issues before they are posted.
Google staff told to be mindful of language. A memo from Google Chief Economist Hal Varian in 2023 instructed staff to avoid using certain terms, such as "market share" and "bundle," in order to avoid being perceived as monopolists.
Texas antitrust case returns to Texas. A federal appeals court ruled on Monday that a landmark antitrust case targeting Google's digital advertising monopoly will be returned to Texas, where it was originally filed. The case is led by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and a coalition of 17 states.
Other Notable Developments:
The trial is expected to last about nine weeks.
Judge Mehta has issued a number of rulings on pretrial motions, including limiting the scope of discovery and setting a schedule for the trial.
Both sides have called expert witnesses to testify on the economic and technical aspects of the case.
The trial is being closely watched by the tech industry, regulators, and consumers.
What's Next:
The trial is scheduled to resume on Tuesday, October 11, with the Justice Department continuing its presentation of evidence. The trial is expected to conclude in December, with a verdict from Judge Mehta sometime in early 2024.

The outcome of the trial could have a significant impact on Google and the tech industry as a whole. If the government wins, Google could be forced to break up into smaller companies or change its business practices. This could lead to more competition and innovation in the tech sector. The trial also has the potential to set a precedent for other antitrust cases against tech giants.
