Engineer Behind Google Memo Sues Over Discrimination Against White Male Conservatives

James Damore, the Google employee who was sacked after circulating an anti-diversity memo last August, isn't over his dismissal apparently as he has now filed a lawsuit against his former employer.

Photo James Damore's lawsuit against Google, which fired him past year after he criticized its diversity efforts, said, "Google's open hostility for conservative thought is paired with invidious discrimination on the basis of race and gender".

It alleges that Google singles out and punish employees like Damore who expressed views that don't align with how the majority of employees at the tech firm feel about politics and diversity efforts.

Mr. Damore and another former Google engineer, David Gudeman, filed a lawsuit Monday, which seeks class-action status, in superior court in California's Santa Clara County.

Gudeman was sacked in 2016 because he made comments supporting now-President Donald Trump during the presidential campaign and because he questioned a co-worker's claims that he was being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation exclusively because he was a Muslim, according to the complaint.

At a news conference Monday afternoon, Damore's attorney alleged that Google encourages employees to "harass other employees into submission" and that it is "acceptable at Google to threaten violence" against employees with conservative views.
