WASHINGTON: US District Judge Amit Mehta on Oct 26 set a status hearing on the Justice Department's antitrust lawsuit against Alphabet Inc's Google for Oct 30.

Mehta said lawyers for Google and the Justice Department must appear at the telephone status hearing at 10am EDT (10pm, Malaysia) that will be open to the public or media. – Reuters
