FTC chairman pushing for a Google antitrust decision this week

FTC set to rule on Google Antitrust case in preparation for commissioner change

It's looking like the Federal Trade Commission will, this week, rule on its antitrust investigation of Google. Sources familiar with the matter have stated that the settlement will be quite similar to the one discussed in December.

FTC Chairman Jon Leibowitz is leading the charge for the vote from all five commissioners and is hoping for the gavel to fall late this week.

 

The push to make a quick decision is no doubt based on the decision by the senate to replace Commissioner Thomas Rosch with law professor George Mason. Rosch's last day on the commission will be Friday.
