  11. Google Plays Hardball With Hollywood Studios Over Subpoenaed...Read the original story w/Photo

    Jun 3, 2015 | SFGate

In nearly identical briefs filed this week in federal courts in the Southern District of New York and in Washington, D.C., Google asks that Viacom, Twenty-First Century Fox and NBCUniversal be forced to comply with a subpoena issued by a judge in Mississippi, where Google is at war with state Attorney General Jim Hood.

    Jun 3, 2015 | Deadline

    The search engine giant is not getting the results it wants and Google has turned to the courts to make NBCUniversal , Viacom , 21st Century Fox and a heavyweight law firm cough them up. In virtually identical filings in federal court in New York and Washington D.C. earlier this week, the tech giant seeks court orders to make the studios and lobbyists at Jenner & Block hand over subpoenaed internal documents that allegedly reveal the shadowy harmonized efforts behind an investigation of Google by Mississippi State Attorney General Jim Hood.
