Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley launches an antitrust investigation into Google (GOOGL, GOOG), accusing the company of violating the state's consumer protection laws.
He says most people don't realize that Google builds individual user profiles of those who use the company's services.

In a statement, Google spokesman Patrick Lenihan said that his company has not yet received Hawley's subpoena.

In the announcement, Hawley's office emphasized the historic $2.7 billion in fines leveled by the European Union against Google for its anti-trust practices and a complaint filed by the Electronic Privacy Information Center with the Federal Trade Commission on Google's consumer tracking practices.
Hawley's investigation seeks to determine whether Google violated Missouri's antitrust laws by scraping content from competing websites, bumping down competitors in search results and listing Google-owned sites first.
