The case charges Google/Alphabet/YouTube with running payback and vendetta operations in violation of anti-trust laws as part of a competitive retribution program that Google engaged in because of witness testimony, by plaintiffs, for a series of federal investigations.
The specific causes of action in the case, documented at the website ourgooglelawsuit.com, include: patent infringement, intentional interference with contractual relations, intentional interference with prospective economic advantage, cyber-stalking, fraud, invasion of privacy and unfair competition as a class action.

Plaintiffs filed the first case “in pro per”, meaning on-their-own, using third-party agency input, para-legals and advisory consultants. Plaintiffs are now seeking to hire a lead law firm to manage the rest of the case through to the demanded jury trial. Plaintiffs are seeking damages in excess of $1B. They have based their damages metrics on internal documents from defendants filings and outside, concurrent, investigations.
