Google Execs to Meet with EU Antitrust Regulator

The European Union’s top antitrust regulator is expected to meet with Google executives as settlement talks between the search giant and the U.S. authorities gain momentum. The Europeans have been seeking a settlement with Google since May, and Joaquín Almunia, the Union’s competition commissioner, and Eric E. Schmidt, the executive chairman of Google, have met on previous occasions trying to reach an accord.
