Robbing Jonathan to pay Paul (Weiss): The Tipline for 22 August 2023

Assistant attorney general Jonathan Kanter is recused from the Department of Justice’s ad tech case against Google – at least for 86 more days. The DOJ told a federal court in Alexandria on Friday that Kanter initially recused himself from the case as part of a one-year cooling off period before the Antitrust Division filed suit in January.
