Gujarat-born US District Court Judge Amit Priyavadan Mehta has been selected to hear US Justice Department’s antitrust case against Google.

Mehta is a judge on the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. He was appointed to the court in 2014 and heard a Federal Trade Commission fight to block a merger of Sysco and US Foods. In 2015, he ruled for the government and the deal was abandoned.

In May 2019, Mehta ruled in favour of a US House of Representatives committee seeking President Donald Trump’s financial records from his accounting firm.

The 48-year-old was previously a partner at law firm Zuckerman Spaeder LLP. He also worked as a public defender in Washington for five years.
