Fired Google engineer who wrote controversial memo sues tech firm

But Damore's complaint appears to focus on how hard it is to be a white man in a primarily white and largely male-dominated field and goes after Google for discrimination against being male or Caucasian and its "open hostility for conservative thought".

James Damore was fired from his engineering job at Google past year after he wrote a memo that criticized the company's diversity efforts and argued that the low number of women in engineering positions was a result of biological differences. However, Damore's attorneys are extra bold in their assertion that another he, along with former Google employee (David Gudeman) and unspecified others, have been wronged to the degree that a class-action lawsuit is warranted.

As BuzzFeed News reports, several women have filed discrimination suits against Google, alleging that the company paid them less than their male counterparts, and faulting the company for asking the female hires about prior pay. This unacceptable behavior occurred at the hands of high-level managers at Google who were responsible for hundreds, if not thousands, of hiring and firing decisions...

Man Accused Of Sexual Assault On Spirit Airlines Flight
He had initially stated that he had been in "deep sleep" during the flight and did not know where he had placed his hands. The flight, which was being operated by Spirit Airlines , was flying from Las Vegas to Detroit on 3 January.

The complaint, which can be read in full below, is packed full of examples of internal communications at Google showing the intense pressure that was brought to bear on conservatives at the company, as well as anyone who disagreed with the political priorities of its progressive employees. He also distinguished himself by arguing that the gender gap at tech companies is the result of "biological causes", and that the men are simply better equipped than women for tech jobs. Google terminated Damore for the memo, saying it was contrary to the company's basic values and code of conduct.

Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Damore and Gudeman's lawsuit on Monday.
