Google Slayers

I have a new story out in the May issue of The American Lawyer about Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft, the law firm that wants to bring Google back down to size.

There have been a few developments in the case since the story went to press:

Late last month, the Ohio Attorney General has intervened in the case, asking Judge John P. Bessey to deny Google’s motion to dismiss the antitrust case filed by Cadwalader on behalf of MyTriggers.com.

AG Richard Cordray takes exception to Google’s argument that Ohio law doesn’t apply to Google’s conduct. And Cordray also finds fault wiht the Internet search giant argument that the state’s Valentine Antitrust Act doesn’t outlaw monopolies that act unilaterally to crush competition.
