Four insiders familiar with the matter said on Wednesday that a group of U.S. states led by New York is investigating Facebook Inc for possible antitrust violations and plans to file a lawsuit against the social media giant next week. More than 40 states plan to sign on to the lawsuit, an insider said, without naming them. The FTC could file a related complaint with an administrative law judge or in district court. What the states plan to include in their complaint was not made known by the Insiders making the claim. Facebook chose to decline making comments on the claim.
