James Damore Sues Google for Discriminating Against White Men

James Damore, the guy who was sacked from Google after writing a 10-page screed accusing the company of discriminating against conservative white men, has filed a lawsuit against his previous employers and oh wow, it is ... something.

The sueball was lobbed into the Superior Court of California in Santa Clara on Monday by Damore and fellow former Googler David Gudeman.

"Damore, Gudeman, and other class members were ostracized, belittled, and punished for their heterodox political views, and for the added sin of their birth circumstances of being Caucasians and/or males", the lawsuit alleged. Damore and Gudeman also claim Google shames hiring managers who fail to meet illegal diversity quotas in place, and that male and white candidates are openly said to be "less favored" than others in the hiring process.

Google executives denounced Damore's memo at the time.

Now, Damore is suing Google for what he alleges is the company's discrimination against white male conservatives.

Investigators later found Roland's Jeep Cherokee parked outside the mall around midnight. "She cared for other people". Roland went missing after covering a football camp on Saturday in Houston , according to her family.

It's an unjust world for conservative white males, say two who filed a lawsuit against Google Monday. (Note the use of the term transgenderism, which, well, isn't how anybody in 2018 should be talking about the transgender community.) "The only lifestyle that seems to not be openly discussed on Google's internal forums is traditional heterosexual monogamy". In an interview with CNBC, for example, he compared being a conservative at Google to "being gay in the 1950s".

He is now claiming that Google discriminates against politically conservative white men.

Google is also facing allegations that it discriminated against women who taught its employees' children at the company's preschool.

The lawsuit also alleges that Google employees were awarded bonuses for arguing against Damore's views.

The suit goes through exhaustive details of Damore, the memorandum he put together to point out how Google could still hire in women and minorities without lowering the bar of employment quality with diversity quotas, and how women could be assigned to jobs better suited to the strengths of their gender rather than trying to shoehorn them into positions where they didn't necessarily excel. "To suggest a group of our colleagues have traits that make them less biologically suited to that work is offensive and not OK", wrote CEO Sundar Pichai in an internal memo announcing Damore's departure.

"We look forward to defending against Mr. Damore's lawsuit in court", a Google spokesperson said.

Damore was eventually fired, but he was never explicitly told what policy he violated.

But the lawsuit contends Damore's firing reflects Google's intolerance for opinions that aren't widely shared by its workforce. Last month, a fourth complainant joined their suit.

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.
