Europe’s second-highest court will rule on Sept. 14 on Alphabet GOOGL-Q unit Google’s challenge against a record €4.34-billion ($4.8-billion) EU antitrust fine levied for using its Android mobile operating system to squeeze out rivals.

The judgment from the Luxembourg-based General Court comes 10 months after the world’s most popular internet search engine lost its fight in the same court against a €2.42-billion penalty in another case. It has filed an appeal.

A Court spokesperson confirmed the date.

During a five-day court hearing last year, Google called the European Commission fine staggering and inappropriate.

The company has racked up more than €8-billion in EU antitrust fines in the last decade. EU antitrust enforcers are now investigating Google over its data use and an online advertising pact with Facebook.

The case is T-604/18 Google vs European Commission.
