As the big tech tyrants tighten their grip, join us for more free speech at Parler—the anti-censorship social media platform.

The Department of Justice, under Attorney General Bill Barr, announced on Tuesday that they are bringing suit against tech giant Google for their dominance in search and advertising functions.

This is the first anti-trust suit brought against Google by the US federal government, though attorneys general from states across the country have been investigating their practices and market dominance, according to CNBC.

The case is being brought under Section 2 of the Sherman Act, and claims that Google's dominance in these markets is an unlawful monopoly for "general search services, search advertising, and general search text advertising."

The case is being brought after an investigation that has spanned over a year. While Google was investigated for anti-trust violations by the Federal Trade Commission, that case was closed in 2013.

Those states that have come aboard as plaintiffs in the anti-trust case include Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, South Caroling, and Texas.
