Yelp has said it'll renew its antitrust complaint against Google over what it claims are that Google unfairly promotes its own services in SERPs.
The heart of Yelp’s concern remains the same: That Google’s local search tools, such as business listings and reviews from Google Maps, receive top billing in results while links to Yelp and other sources of potentially more helpful information are listed much lower.

When I search for my business, the very next listing under my Google My Business page (and above my own business page sometimes) is the Yelp page about my business.

Maybe I should file an antitrust complaint against Yelp?

No, because it's not Yelp deciding of the order of the sites at Google.
