In his memo, Damore had claimed that the disparity in payment of wages between men and women existed because the latter was "biologically" less capable than the former. 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.
"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 and potential employees at Google", it says.
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. "This included employment and business-related topics such as "'diversity" hiring policies, "bias sensitivity" or "social justice.'" The lawsuit also alleges that Google uses illegal hiring quotas in order to fill positions with female and minority candidates.

The suit is an extension of Damore's notorious memo, titled "Google's Ideological Echo Chamber" (a phrase that appears in the lawsuit as well), which accused Google of muting opinions about diversity to protect "psychological safety".
He said he felt his suit would "really help make Google a truly inclusive place".
This newspaper reached out to Google and this post will be updated.
Months later, Damore has now decided that it was unfair for Google to fire him for his sexist rhetoric, so he's suing them for ... discrimination against white males.
