Damore's original memo, which was leaked this fall, criticized Google's "left leaning" culture and argued that women in engineering were paid less than men due to their biological differences, not because of hiring practice.
An ex-Google employee, fired after his internal memo arguing against the company's diversity efforts drew widespread criticism, has filed a proposed class action lawsuit against the company, NBC News reported.
Attorneys for Damore and the other engineer, David Gudeman, filed the lawsuit today in Santa Clara Superior Court, and are seeking to represent others whose rights they claim were also violated.

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.
The suit claims white men were booed at company-wide meetings: "Not only was the numerical presence of women celebrated at Google exclusively due to their gender, but the presence of Caucasians and males was mocked with "boos" during company-wide weekly meetings".
Damore was sacked last summer after he wrote a memo criticizing Google for pushing mentoring and diversity programs and for "alienating conservatives". Meanwhile, Google's HR department allegedly accused a conservative employee of "inciting violence" after he stated that he would teach traditional gender roles to his children.

"This lawsuit is really meant to help everyone, both at Google, and people affected by Google's products, and potential future employees", he said.
Damore was sacked in August of 2017 after he penning a memo to a Google message board titled "Google's Ideological Echo Chamber".
Meanwhile, a separate lawsuit filed by three women a month after Damore posted his document, alleged Google pays women less than men for similar work and gives them less opportunity for promotions, bonuses, and raises.
