A San Francisco judge has dimissed a recent class action lawsuit against Google for gender-based pay discrimination, according to Reuters.
- The judge said that the lawsuit didn't show that it applied to an entire class of people — all women in California who have worked for Google — and that two of the three plaintiffs didn't demonstrate they did work comparable to male counterparts for less pay.
Up next: The judge told the plaintiffs that they have 30 days to file a new complaint only on behalf of the women who faced pay discrimination.
