California Is Suing Amazon, Accusing It of Violating the State’s Antitrust and Unfair Competition Laws by Stifling Competition

From an AP story by Haleluya Hadero headlined “California sues Amazon, alleging antitrust law violations”:

California is suing Amazon, accusing the company of violating the state’s antitrust and unfair competition laws by stifling competition and engaging in practices that push sellers to maintain higher prices on products on other sites.

The 84-page lawsuit filed Wednesday in San Francisco Superior Court mirrors another complaint filed last year by the District of Columbia, which was dismissed by a district judge earlier this year and is now going through an appeals process.
