MOSCOW, March 14. /TASS/. The Moscow Arbitration Court has dismissed the lawsuit Google filed against Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS), a participant to the court’s hearing told reporters.
The hearing was held behind the closed doors on Monday.
"The court has upheld the decision of the FAS," he said.
A spokesman with Google’s office in Russia told TASS: "We will study the court’s decision to define our next steps."
The main hearing on the case began on March 10. On Monday, the court declared its decision.
The preliminary hearing was initially scheduled for January 25, than it was postponed until February 5 and later until March 1.
On February 5, the court brought the Yandex company as a third party in the case.
On September 14, 2015 the Federal Antimonopoly Service ruled that Google Inc. and Google Ireland Ltd. had breached the competition protection law under the complaint of the Russian Internet company Yandex. According to the regulator, Google obliged manufacturers of Android OS-based devices to pre-install its applications together with Android platform. The FAS said that Google’s policy restricted installation of applications by other developers. Google did not agree with the ruling and appealed to the court.
