Today, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled on our Motion for Summary Judgment, dismissing core claims about the design of Google Search. Kent Walker, Google’s President of Global Affairs & Chief Legal Officer, released the following statement:
“We appreciate the Court’s careful consideration and decision to dismiss claims regarding the design of Google Search. Our engineers build Search to provide the best results and help you quickly find what you’re looking for. People have more ways than ever to access information, and they choose to use Google because it’s helpful. We look forward to showing at trial that promoting and distributing our services is both legal and pro-competitive.”
In addition to dismissing claims regarding the design of Google Search, the Court also dismissed allegations about Google's Android Compatibility Agreements, Anti-Fragmentation Agreements, Google Assistant, Internet of Things Devices, and Android Open Source Project.
