Ex-employees File Discrimination Lawsuit Against Claiming Google

The memo in which he criticized the company's hiring practices, and claimed that disparities between men and women in the technology industry were at least partially due to behavioral differences between those genders due to biology, led to his firing from the company in August.

A Google engineer who was sacked after writing a memo defending the gender gap in Silicon Valley tech jobs as a matter of biology has sued his former employer for discrimination.

The memo, which cited women's "neuroticism" as a reason why there are fewer female workers in high-stress jobs, was published the following day by tech website Gizmodo and went viral.

Serena Williams Drops out of Australian Open
The 36-year-old went on to win the tournament, defeating her sister in the final, before taking the remainder of the year off. In January a year ago , Serena won the Australian Open for an Open-Era record seventh time, defeating her sister Venus.

The lawsuit is being filed by Dhillon Law Group, and former Google engineer David Gudeman is also a member of the suit. Damore was quickly fired.

James Damore says Google fired him over his political views, conservative thought and because he is a white man, according to a class action filed in Santa Clara Superior Court.

"Google's management goes to extreme - and illegal - lengths to encourage hiring managers to take protected categories such as race and/or gender into consideration as determinative hiring factors, to the detriment of Caucasian and male employees and potential employees at Google", it says.

"We were sort of brainwashed to believe that this was the natural course of things", he said.

In a new lawsuit, Damore claimed that Google "singled out, mistreated, and systematically punished and terminated" anyone who didn't share their liberal views.
