The James Damore Case Could Spawn More Legal Headaches for Google

Fired Google engineer James Damore and his lawyer say they’ve talked to other Google employees who claim to have been discriminated against for challenging Google’s liberal political orthodoxy, suggesting the tech giant may face additional legal fallout from the incident.

Google fired Damore earlier this month after he posted a memo on an internal discussion board questioning women’s fitness to be engineers. Damore has filed an unfair-labor-practice charge against the company and said he may sue. Now, he and attorney Harmeet Dhillon say they’re exploring broader legal action against the company, on behalf of multiple Google employees.
