WAS SHINGTON: Facebook Inc. And Alphabet Inc. No Google agreed to “cooperate and help each other if they face an investigation into their agreement to work together to advertise”, according to an indefinite version of the lawsuits filed against 10 states by Google last week.
According to the claim, documents of the internal company are cited which were heavily used. The Street Journal reviewed part of the most recent draft version of the lawsuit without redress, detailing the findings and allegations in court documents.
Ten Republican attorneys, led by Texas, are alleging that the two companies struck a deal in September 2018 in which Facebook agreed not to compete with Google’s online online advertising tools when they used it in exchange for special treatment.
Google used the language of “Star Wars” as the code name for the deal, according to the lawsuit, which recreated the real name. The draft version of the suit says it was known as “JD Blue”.
The lawsuit itself said Google and Facebook knew their agreement could stimulate antitrust investigations and discussed how to deal with them in a passage following significant reactions.
