New York Leads 47 States In Facebook Antitrust Probe

Axios reports:

The multi-state antitrust investigation into Facebook, which moved forward Monday as state officials met with experts, now counts 47 attorneys general among its membership.

Facebook is facing attacks on all fronts, with antitrust scrutiny of the company’s size and power also taking shape at the Federal Trade Commission, the Justice Department and Congress.

New York Attorney General Letitia James said Tuesday the bipartisan investigation has expanded to include several more states and territories, including Republican attorneys general from Arizona and Louisiana. James and other state attorneys general recently met with leaders at the Justice Department and FTC to discuss the probe.
