Ken Paxton, the Republican Attorney General of Texas, has had his aim on Google for some time, but a new report reveals that he has a surprise attack in store for the big tech giant.
According to Breibart News, Paxton is “expanding the scope of his multi-state antitrust lawsuit against Google to include the tech giant’s planned overhaul of its use of website usage tracking technology known as ‘cookies.'”
The basis of Paxton’s underlying suit alleges Google wields monopolistic powers within the marketplace. Puerto Rico and 4 other states recently joined the case against Google making the total 15 states.
Politico reports “‘Google’s plan to remove advertisers’ ability to track users across the web in its Chrome browser will entrench the search giant’s power over the ad buying market.”
