The U.S. capital city of Washington and 36 U.S. states have filed a lawsuit against Google for violating antitrust laws in the app store for Android devices, the New York Times reports.
According to the newspaper, the suit was filed in federal court in California. The reason is the level of control of the corporation over the Google Play store. In particular, the plaintiffs in the lawsuit will challenge Google's charging a 30% commission on sales of electronic goods and services within the app.
On Oct. 20, the U.S. Justice Department filed a civil lawsuit against Google Corp. over what authorities believe is harmful competition in online venues. The plaintiffs were 11 U.S. states and the federal government.
Earlier it was reported that the official Google store was found dangerous applications that could steal personal data to log into Facebook.
