A bipartisan coalition of 37 attorneys general (AGs) is determined to hold Google accountable for its alleged monopolistic business practices.

On Wednesday, the coalition of AGs filed a second antitrust lawsuit against Google, alleging that the search engine giant is maintaining an illegal monopoly in the Android app distribution and in-app payment processing markets.

In October last year, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) together with 11 states filed an antitrust complaint against Google for allegedly engaging in anticompetitive and exclusionary practices in search and search advertising markets.
