A Google engineer who was sacked after writing a memo defending the gender gap in Silicon Valley tech jobs as a matter of biology has sued his former employer for discrimination.

The lawsuit, filed Monday by Mr. Damore and another former Google employee with California Superior Court of Santa Clara County, also claims that the company uses illegal quotas in order to hire women and minorities.

The Dhillon Law Group said it was filing a class action law suit on behalf of James Damore and others it says were discriminated against due to their "perceived conservative political views", their gender and their Caucasian race.

"Google's open hostility for conservative thought is paired with invidious discrimination on the basis of race and gender". That practice is "openly denigrating male and Caucasian employees as less favored than others", the lawsuit claimed. He also distinguished himself by arguing that the gender gap at tech companies is the result of "biological causes", and that the men are simply better equipped than women for tech jobs.

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".

He said he felt his suit would "really help make Google a truly inclusive place".

In a new lawsuit, Damore claimed that Google "singled out, mistreated, and systematically punished and terminated" anyone who didn't share their liberal views.

The lengthy complaint totals some 62 pages and contains in excess of 100 additional exhibits and appendices, most of which are comprised of memes or social media posts made by Google employees.
