Texas' lawsuit on Google's ad dominance can mostly proceed, judge rules

By Paresh Dave

- Alphabet Inc's GOOGL.O Google must face all but one antitrust allegation about its online advertising business brought in a lawsuit by attorneys general for Texas and other states, a federal judge ruled on Tuesday.

Google won its motion to dismiss an allegation that a cooperation agreement it struck with Meta Platforms' META.O Facebook was an unlawful restraint of trade. But Google failed to convince the judge to dismiss three other counts related to its market power.
