Google at odds with U.S. over protective order for firms tied to lawsuit -court filing

Fri 13th November, 2020 11:10pm
WASHINGTON, Nov 13 (Reuters) - Alphabet's Google  GOOGL.O 
and the U.S. Justice Department have failed to reach agreement
over a protective order for third parties like Microsoft that
provided data to the government for its lawsuit against the
search and advertising giant.
    Google is pressing for two in-house attorneys to have access
to the confidential data while the Justice Department has
disagreed, Google said in a court filing on Friday.
    In the filing, Google argued it needed the information to
prepare an effective defense. It also offered to ensure that any
confidential information would be made available solely to two
in-house attorneys at the offices of Google's outside counsel or
in another secure manner, adding that it would promptly report
any disclosure.
    The companies, which apart from Microsoft Corp  MSFT.O 
include Oracle Corp  ORCL.N , AT&T Inc  T.N , Amazon.com
 AMZN.O , Comcast Corp  CMCSA.O  and others, have until next
Friday to make their proposals for the terms of a protective
order.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL1N2HY029
    Judge Amit Mehta of the U.S. District Court for the District
of Columbia is hearing the Justice Department's case against
Google. The government sued Google in October, accusing the $1
trillion company of illegally using its market muscle to hobble
rivals in the biggest challenge to the power and influence of
Big Tech in decades.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL1N2HB0EX
