Former Software Engineer Sues Google For Sexual Harassment

MOUNTAIN VIEW (KPIX) -- Google has been slapped with a sexual harassment lawsuit.

Former software engineer Loretta Lee said the tech giant's so-called "bro culture" failed to protect her from "severe and pervasive abuse."

Lee says she received sexual text messages, was groped and slapped.

She also claims a male co-worker hid under her desk and propositioned her for sex.

Lee says she was fired for poor performance in 2016, after 8 years with Google.

So far, Google has not commented.
