Mar 28 15
A jury decided that Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers did not discriminate or retaliate against a female employee in a case that shined a light on gender imbalance and working conditions for women in Silicon Valley. The jury in San Francisco reached the verdict in a lawsuit filed by Ellen Pao against Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. The verdict came after a judge ordered the panel to resume deliberations after a discrepancy was found in the initial vote count. Jurors heard conflicting portraits of Pao during closing arguments. Her attorneys said she was an accomplished junior partner who was passed over for a promotion and fired because the firm used different standards to judge men and women.
