OUR CLASS WAS CERTIFIED IN ELLIS V. GOOGLE!— Kelly Ellis (@justkelly_ok) May 27, 2021
This means the judge agreed we can sue as a class, rather than each individual woman needing to sue for relief. This is HUGE.
The class includes over 10,800 women affected by Google's gender bias.
This is super-interesting to me, partly because I went to some of the hearings in the Microsoft gender case that failed to get class certification (didn't really meet the high standard set in Walmart v Dukes). https://t.co/N03qPeeBLq— Dina Bass (@dinabass) May 27, 2021
