Fired Google Employee Who Wrote Anti-Diversity Memo Threatens To Sue; Legal Expert Says He Doesn’t Have A Case
The following is an excerpt from Christopher Carbone | August 8, 2017 | Foxnews.com |
The Google software engineer fired on August 7 for publishing an anti-diversity memo is reportedly pursuing legal remedies, but one law expert says he does not have a First Amendment case.

Damore published a 10-page memo on an internal company site – which produced a flood of responses from all sides – accusing the tech giant of stifling ideological diversity at the expense of promoting women and people of color.
