  • Google Memo Author James Damore Sues Company For Discrimination Against White Males

James Damore, the engineer that Google fired in August for writing a memo suggesting women are less interested in tech due to their biology, has filed a lawsuit against Google.

The lawsuit seeks to represent all employees of Google who've been discriminated against and seeks monetary, non-monetary, and punitive damages.

The suit also includes David Gudeman, a former Google engineer who left the company in 2016.

The lawsuit, filed by Dhillon Law Group, alleges Damore and Gudeman faced discrimination because of their "perceived conservative political views", "their male gender", and "their Caucasian race".

"Google employs illegal hiring quotas to fill its desired percentages of women and favored minority candidates, and openly shames managers of business units who fail to meet their quotas - in the process, openly denigrating male and Caucasian employees as less favored than others", reads the court filing.

Lionel Messi's Father Hints That Catalan Independence Clause Exists In Contract
The Argentina global signed a new deal with the La Liga leaders in November to keep him tied to the club until June 2021. However, Messi insists that he will continue with Barcelona regardless of Spain's political climate.


The proposed class-action complaint says, "Google's open hostility for conservative thought is paired with invidious discrimination on the basis of race and gender, barred by law".

"Not only was the numerical presence of women celebrated at Google exclusively due to their gender, but the presence of Caucasians and males was mocked with "boos" during company-wide weekly meetings", the filing reads.

The suit is an extension of Damore's notorious memo, titled "Google's Ideological Echo Chamber" (a phrase that appears in the lawsuit as well), which accused Google of muting opinions about diversity to protect "psychological safety".

A Google spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment.
