Google Expects EU Antitrust Decision Soon

Google Inc. and its critics are preparing for the European Union to make a decision on how to proceed with a four-year-old antitrust probe against the company as soon as this week, according to three people familiar with the case. European Union Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager, who is leading the probe, leaves on Wednesday for her first trip to the U.S. since assuming the post and an announcement would allow her to discuss the case, the people said on condition of anonymity because details of the probe aren’t public.
