Google gets Sept 14 hearing for $4.8 billion fine by EU

Europe’s second-highest court will rule on September 14 on Alphabet unit Google’s challenge against a record €4.34 billion EU competition fine levied for using its Android mobile operating system to squeeze out rivals.

The judgment from the Luxembourg based General Court comes 10 months after the world’s most popular internet search engine lost its fight in the same court against a €2.42 billion penalty in another case.

It has filed an appeal.

A Court spokesperson confirmed the date.

During a five-day court hearing last year, Google called the European Commission fine staggering and inappropriate.

The company has racked up more than €8 billion in EU antitrust fines in the last decade.

EU competition enforcers are now investigating Google over its data use and an online advertising pact with Facebook. RTE
