A Republican law professor nominated to the Federal Trade Commission said on Tuesday he would recuse himself from the agency's investigations into Google for two years to avoid any possible conflicts of interest.

The FTC is investigating Google for allegedly breaking antitrust law, although the probe could well be done before Joshua Wright is confirmed to the commission.

Wright has served as director of research at the International Center for Law and Economics, a group that received funding from Google. In academic papers he has questioned the merits of bringing an antitrust case against the Web search giant.
