Google calls Justice Department lawsuit 'deeply flawed'

Google responded to the US Justice Department’s antitrust lawsuit in a blog post, saying it was “deeply flawed” and that users would find it more difficult to access superior search tools and affordable smartphones if the government wins its case.

“American antitrust law is designed to promote innovation and help consumers, not tilt the playing field in favor of particular competitors or make it harder for people to get the services they want,” Google senior vice president Kent Walker said in a blog post.

Google says those agreements, in which it shares revenue from search ads with distributors such as iPhone maker Apple, help subsidize phones.
