Lawsuit: Google employees were fired for upholding “Don’t be evil” code

Three former Google software engineers who sued the company yesterday claim they were fired for following Google's famous "Don't be evil" mantra. "Google terminated each plaintiffs' employment with it for adhering to the directive 'Don't be evil' and calling out activity by Google that they each believed betrayed that directive," according to the complaint filed in Santa Clara County Superior Court by Rebecca Rivers, Sophie Waldman, and Paul Duke. The ex-employees say Google falsely blamed them for a data leak after they circulated an internal petition.
