AG Jackley says affected South Dakotans will receive portion of Goggle settlement

South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley says the state of South Dakota and individual citizens will receive money from a $700 million agreement reached with Google regarding the company’s anti-competitive conduct with Google Play Store.

Money received from the agreement will be divided into two categories. Individual South Dakotans will share in $630 million that goes to consumers.

The Attorney General’s Office will receive almost $263,000 in attorney fees and other expenses as part the agreement. That money will go into the Antitrust Division.

Jackley says South Dakotans, who will receive individual payouts will be contacted directly by the company.

The lawsuit involved Attorneys General from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and the territories of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
