EU Lawmaker Wants to Probe New Google Evidence

European Union regulators should consider new evidence that the U.S. antitrust case against Google Inc. was stronger than previously thought as they weigh whether to sue the U.S. search giant for violating competition rules, an EU lawmaker, who has previously called for a possible breakup of the company, said. The Wall Street Journal reported a day earlier that officials at the Federal Trade Commission had concluded in 2012 that Google used anticompetitive tactics and abused its monopoly power in ways that harmed Internet users and rivals, a far harsher analysis of Google’s business than was previously known.
