They've abruptly asked for the case to be dismissed. I have no proof of this but it smells like a settlement......

Here's an exert from the manifesto he wrote that got him sacked:



Damore was fired in 2017 after he wrote a 3,300-word, 10-page manifesto complaining about Google's approach to diversity and saying there are 'differences between men and women' which mean women can not get ahead at the firm.

'At Google, we're regularly told that implicit (unconscious) and explicit biases are holding women back in tech and leadership,' he wrote.

'Of course, men and women experience bias, tech, and the workplace differently and we should be cognizant of this, but it's far from the whole story.

'On average, men and women biologically differ in many ways.'

Among the perceived differences is that women have 'a stronger interest in people rather than things' which he said explains 'why women prefer jobs in social or artistic areas.'

Men, he said, are more prone to jobs like coding 'because it requires systemizing'.

Damore wrote that women were generally 'more prone to neuroticism' and that this is why there aren't so many females in high-stress jobs.

'We always ask why we don't see women in top leadership positions, but we never ask why we see so many men in these jobs. These positions often require long, stressful hours that may not be worth it if you want a balanced and fulfilling life.'

The memo was leaked by a coworker and went viral, with some arguing it was proof of a sexist, boys-club culture in Silicon Valley.

'These positions often require long, stressful hours that may not be worth it if you want a balanced and fulfilling life."

This is exactly why you don't see a crap load of females in upper System Administrator positions. Working after hours, sometimes a lot, on weekends, holidays, during scheduled vacation all the while not getting paid any overtime because you're a salary position pretty much scares them away. We've had a couple in the last 25 years or so that were hired. None of them lasted over 2 years.
