Ellen Pao Drops Appeal in Gender Discrimination Lawsuit Against Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers

Onetime venture capital partner and former Reddit interim Chief Executive Ellen Pao is dropping her appeal in a gender discrimination lawsuit against Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. Pao, who sued Kleiner Perkins for gender discrimination and lost her case in a high-profile jury trial in 2015. Pao said she had not reached any settlement with the firm. In the trial, a jury found that Kleiner Perkins did not discriminate or retaliate against Pao when it fired her in 2012. A judge has ordered her to pay Kleiner Perkins $275,000 in legal fees.

Truecaller To Reportedly Raise Funds From Investors; Term Sheets Out

True Software Scandinavia AB (Truecaller) intends to raise around $100 million at a $1 billion valuation. It is known to have retained Morgan Stanley to lead the process, and there are term sheets out. The round is likely to have previous and new investors. Previous investors include Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Sequoia Capital, Atomico Investment Holdings Limited, Open Ocean Capital Ltd. and Access Partners LLC.

Ellen Pao to Appeal Kleiner Perkins Bias Case

Ellen Pao, the former venture capitalist who filed a high-stakes gender discrimination lawsuit against Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, filed a Notice of Appeal on June 1, 2015 in San Francisco Superior Court. A six-man, six-woman jury found in favor of the venture capital firm in March after four weeks of testimony that was closely watched by Silicon Valley as tensions surrounding the tech industry's lack of diversity swelled. Pao's Notice of Appeal, filed a week ahead of a June 8 deadline, reserves her right to appeal the case. Her legal team now has 40 days to file a formal appeal. In court, Judge Harold Kahn ruled in favor of Pao on most motions, so it is likely the appeal will rest on motions filed before the trial began. If Pao moves forward, she will leave on the table $972,814.50 in legal fees that Kleiner Perkins offered to waive if she did not appeal. Kleiner Perkins said that for now, that offer still stands. Pao sued Kleiner Perkins in 2012 for $16 million in damages for gender discrimination and retaliation, plus unspecified punitive damages. She alleged the firm promoted male partners over equally qualified women, including herself, and then retaliated against her for raising concerns about the firm's gender dynamics by failing to promote her and ultimately firing her. Pao, now interim CEO of the message board site Reddit, was fired after seven years at the firm.
