James Damore files class action lawsuit against Google for discrimination

James Damore, the Google engineer who was fired after his internal memo criticizing the company's diversity efforts went viral, has filed a proposed class-action lawsuit against the company.

Damore's original memo, which leaked last fall, criticized Google's culture as "left leaning" and argued that women in engineering were paid less than men because of their biological differences, not because of hiring practices, among other topics. It sparked a discussion about rampant sexism in Silicon Valley, and Google said that portions of the memo were contrary to the company's "basic values" and Code of Conduct.


I hope he will settle and that it will solve his work problem.

Settle for what? $10 million?
