When the Texas attorney general’s office first opened its investigation into Google’s business practices, the search behemoth promised to cooperate. But two years later, it appears to have fallen short of that pledge.
This week, Texas AG Greg Abbott (R) filed a civil suit against Google demanding the company hand over a bunch of documents it has allegedly been withholding from Abbott’s office. Evidently Google has, on a number of occasions, either redacted documentation or refused outright to turn documents over, claiming attorney-client privilege. But according to Abbott, many of the documents at issue aren’t protected because they either A) weren’t sent to an actual attorney, or B) didn’t request a legal review.
