Washington, D.C. – Today, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) released the following statement after the Department of Justice announced an antitrust lawsuit against Google:

“There is bipartisan agreement in Congress and among federal and state antitrust enforcers that protecting competition and innovation online is essential to our economy. Today’s antitrust lawsuit against Google is an important step for ensuring a competitive online space. The Committee will continue our robust oversight of the antitrust laws and the antitrust agencies to ensure that we address the rise of monopolization in our economy. As I said throughout the House investigation of digital markets, the antitrust laws are a critical bulwark against concentrations of economic power, and robust enforcement of the antitrust laws is paramount for safeguarding both a healthy economy and vibrant democracy.”
