Missouri's attorney general has launched a broad investigation into whether Google is violating the state's consumer-protection and antitrust laws, a new front in the internet giant's regulatory battles.
With the investigation, the state's top lawyer will examine Google's collection, use and disclosure of personal information; its "alleged misappropriation of online content from the websites of its competitors;" and its manipulation of search results to preference "websites owned by Google" and to "demote" websites that compete with Google, according to a statement.
Hawley's probe intends to look at how Google collects information, and how and what they share about somebody's online activities.
Google didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
Hawley on Monday said he also agrees with sentiments from the White House, saying Moore has a right to defend himself against the claims reported by the Washington Post.
Hawley's office argues that federal regulators were wrong not to sue Google and that inaction left an opening for a potential state suit. In July, the Electronic Privacy Information Center filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission regarding a Google program that tracks consumer behavior.

Keenum should not struggle too bad against Washington, but he will probably not have a big game Sunday, either. Thielen has 80 yards receiving and one touchdown, and Treadwell catches five passes for 50 yards.
He also said the Council had been looking at the 28 percent tax slab and constantly rationalising items in it in lesser tax slabs. The panel also recommended lowering tax rates for manufacturers and restaurants under the composition scheme to 1 per cent.
What all this information gets at is, as Twitter sees it, the point of verification: To prove that an account is authentic. Seems like the kind of person Twitter would not want to amplify, but alas no.
