Ellen Pao to Appeal Kleiner Perkins Bias Case
Jun 2 15
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.
