 |  September 26, 2019

Oracle, which has clashed with Alphabet’s Google in business disputes, has received requests for information from congressional and state investigators looking into allegations that Google violated antitrust law, reported Reuters. 

Oracle, which is knowledgeable about Google’s advertising business, has received information requests from the Texas attorney general’s office and the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee, said Ken Glueck, an Oracle executive based in Washington. 

The House Judiciary Committee has sought information from dozens of companies likely to have suffered harm from tech giants, according to a source close the House probe. 

The Committee will decide whether to issue subpoenas depending on how many companies answer voluntarily. Some firms feel they are less likely to be retaliated against by the giants if they are compelled to share information, according to the source.
