Lawyer for fired Google engineer is looking for co-plaintiffs to sue company

Daily Post Staff Writer

The San Francisco law firm of a Republican Party official is preparing to sue Google on behalf of James Damore, the software engineer who was fired for circulating a memo criticizing diversity recruitment in tech.

Dhillon Law Group, headed by California’s Republican National Committeewoman Harmeet Dhillon, posted an ad on its blog Tuesday seeking other Google employees who feel they have been discriminated against at the company.

The ad seeks current and former employees who have “been written up for ‘un-Googly conduct’ for refusing to comply with the political orthodoxy at the company.”

Damore re-tweeted the ad yesterday from the Twitter handle @Fired4Truth.

The controversial memo argued that the dearth of women in tech and leadership roles in Silicon Valley is partially due to biological personality differences between men and women, and not just discrimination.

Last year, Dhillon filed a lawsuit against the city of San Jose on behalf of 20 Trump supporters who said police told them to walk through a “violent mob” of protesters as they left a Trump rally on June 2, 2016.
