Google has lodged its appeal to the EU's Luxembourg-based European Court of Justice over the €2.4 billion fine imposed on it by the European Commission Competition Directorate for favouring its shopping service in search results.
The EU had earlier slammed Google in June with a fine of 2.4-billion euro for illegally favoring its shopping centers in the search results.
A Google spokesman said at the time that they "respectfully disagreed" with the ruling.
If it did not, the Commission said, it faced penalty payments of up to 5 per cent of the average daily worldwide turnover of Alphabet, which is Google's parent company.
The regulator further said that Google could be facing more fines should it continue with its practices, the tach giant has said it had no further comment.
