A lawsuit filed by a former Google engineer and led by Indian American attorney Harmeet Dhillon was denied by the National Labor Relations Board.

James Damore filed a complaint in 2017 against his former employer saying it wasn't within its rights to terminate him after a memo he wrote about the biological differences between men and women was distributed.

The labor board said that Google was within its rights to fire Damore.

Damore argued that women aren’t cut out to be engineers due to biological differences. Upon its July 2017 release, Google’s HR department received multiple complaints, and the memo was eventually leaked to the media. Damore filed a complaint with the NLRB after being fired a month later, according to reports.

Damore’s ongoing lawsuit alleges that Google is the one being discriminatory, with a bias against white male conservatives, Quartz reported.

He’s joined by one co-defendant, a former employee named David Gudeman. Though filed as a class action suit, it’s far from certain Damore and Gudeman will receive class certification, the report said.
