Google lost its appeal towards the 2017 ruling against it by the European Commission.

The European General Court, which is Europe’s second highest court, found that the search giant violated the European antitrust law by prioritizing its shopping comparison service over its rival products.

Under the ruling, Google and its parent company – Alphabet Inc – were directed to pay fines of €2.4 billion.

There is one more avenue available for Google to file an appeal, the European Court of Justice, which is the highest court of the European Union.

Currently, the search engine behemoth is mired in multiple antitrust law breach cases, which involves Google’s Android and AdSense.

For antitrust breach cases against its Android and AdSense, Google is going through an appeal process, similar to what it had to go through for its shopping comparison service.
