Judge sets mid-November deadline for Google's initial response to U.S. antitrust case

Google must tell a district court how it will respond to a federal antitrust lawsuit by mid-November, U.S. Judge Amit Mehta said.

Judge Mehta added that the two sides should make initial disclosures about potential witnesses and evidence that may be used at trial by November 20.

The federal government alleges that Google acted unlawfully to maintain its position in search as well as search advertising.

John Schmidtlein, who represents Google, agreed to tell the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia by Nov. 13 if the search and advertising giant planned to ask for the case to be thrown out on summary judgment.
