The Justice Department filed an antitrust lawsuit alleging that Google abuses its role brokering digital advertising across much of the internet, a major expansion of the legal challenges the company faces to its business in the U.S. and abroad.

The suit, the Justice Department’s second against the Alphabet Inc. unit following one filed in 2020, focuses on Google’s role as the one of the largest brokers, suppliers and online auctioneers of ads placed on websites and mobile applications. The filing promises a protracted antitrust battle with wide-ranging implications for the digital-advertising industry.
