Google Lands Victory in Gender Discrimination Lawsuit

In a win for Google, a California judge has rejected a class action claim against the company for alleged gender inequity. In September, three former female employees filed a lawsuit against Google, asserting women were paid less than men, assigned to lower paying jobs, and promoted less often.

Superior Court Judge Mary Wiss in San Francisco said on Monday the lawsuit was inappropriate because it was brought on behalf of all women who worked for Google in California. She gave the plaintiffs 30 days to file a new complaint on behalf of only those women who faced pay discrimination. The decision comes as Google faces an investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor into sex bias in its pay practices.
