Ex-Google employee behind anti-diversity memo sues for discrimination

Google fired James Damore in August 2017

In doing so, Damore also painted gross generalizations against women, accusing them of being more neurotic and anxiety-ridden, and he believes these supposed traits render women unsuitable for the stress of higher-level tech jobs. 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. Damore was quickly fired.

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".

HMD Global announces second generation Nokia 6
Elsewhere, the speaker setup on-board the original Nokia 6 came with dual amplifiers and support for Dolby Atmos sound technology. The report also claimed that the smartphone would be available for purchase exclusively through Amazon India at present.

The company uses illegal hiring quotas to achieve a certain percentage of women and minority employees, and "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", the complaint stated.

In August, Google CEO Sundar Pichai wrote in a memo to employees that the tech firm fired Damore because he violated the company's code of conduct, which states that Googlers should "do their utmost to create a workplace culture that is free of harassment, intimidation, bias and unlawful discrimination".

ESPN at it again: Trump's 'af***ing stupid person'
ESPN declined to comment to Sporting News about Nolan, but is known to handle controversial situations on a case-by-case basis. Nolan said that Trump was a "fucking stupid person" on Viceland's "Desus & Mero" talk show on Wednesday.

"This lawsuit is really meant to help everyone, both at Google, and people affected by Google's products, and potential future employees", he said.

Google terminated Gudeman in 2016 after he made comments suggesting a Muslim colleague had a link to terrorism.

Van Dyke's wife, Shirley , told TMZ she was by his side when her husband passed away at their Arkansas ranch on Friday afternoon. Nelson released a statement to Eyewitness News, saying he is incredibly sad to hear of his passing.

Meanwhile, a separate lawsuit filed by three women a month after Damore posted his document, alleged Google pays women less than men for similar work and gives them less opportunity for promotions, bonuses, and raises.
