You white, male slave lord. Its because of you that she didn't get umpteen millions, which she clearly deserved. I mean, she sat at a desk for ages, and made some decisions. That's millions in the making,

I like that back handed insult. I had no luck so the system is broken, but I otherwise had a fine point. Fucking digger. A beard to a gay bloke that destroys people's finances. What a fucking cunt.

Pao lost all counts of her case against the venture capital firm on March 27, 2015, when a jury found that her gender was not the motivating reason for her not being promoted to a general or senior partner, or for her termination at the firm. In June, Pao was ordered to pay $275,966.63 in court costs to her former employer Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers.

From what I've read from this, she was fired for being incompetent.


I for one am glad they can put this crap behind them. She has been a huge embarrassment for the Asian American community (well at least in my circle).

You have no idea how fast this shit spreads through the community. It's almost lightning fast (at the person to person level), even people who don't know how to use a computer were talking about it.

I agree with weezkitty, I don't think people have viewed it as "tssst, typical Asian Americans". She's just a really, really, unlikeable bitch, who is really just a dumpster-fire of a person.

Asian Americans are awesome, you get to be an great American slob, usually minus the slob.

The worst of it is she was given every imaginable advantage and still failed. They hired her a mentor who worked with google, offered her a cushy board job with an affiliate, finally caved and promoted her despite multiple negative evaluations, and kept trying to work with her to improve her even after she was known to be incompetent, and hostile.

Most jobs you're lucky that they explained why they fired you. Here the more you fuck up the better your career fairs! And after all that consideration she still sues them for the exact amount her husband needs to pay off his own legal issues. Fucking beautiful. I'm just glad she walked away having fucked up her lawsuit as badly as her career.

There is no way that she would be considered a vexatious litigant over this. That usually requires repeated or egregious instances of bringing cases which have no arguable basis in fact or law.

Basically they need to be bringing cases where they wont win even if the Defendant never shows up. If Kleiner Perkins hadn't put on a defence, Pao would have had enough evidence to win this case. That just makes it a losing case, not frivolous or vexatious.

You don't become a vexatious litigant just for losing cases, even if you lose a lot.

Sad thing is she's not going away. In the bizarro world of SF/Silicon Valley this complete and total fraud that has failed over and over again and sowed poison everywhere she goes is considered a hero by many. She'll become a champion for "diversity" and tech companies will pay her big money to sit on some bullshit diversity counsel.

Honestly, losing her lawsuit was probably one of the best things that could have ever happened to her. Because, in spite of all the facts that she is a horrible, vindictive, manipulative person it added to her "gravitas" by making her even more of a "victim" to people that don't care about facts.

No. She doesn't deserve the attention and she doesn't deserve the hate (simply because humans ought to be nice to each other, don't jump on that), but she does deserve to have her situation and her shitty ass attempts at harassment viewed in full, so people can understand this type of bullshit better and maybe figure out a way to respond to it later.

She's doing a great job dispelling the stereotype of Asians as hardworking, intelligent, and productive people.

Haven't heard much about Ellen Pao in a long time. It sounds like maybe she has grown a little bit of sense. The lawsuit has always been retarded. Typical of an SJW though

Yes. When I saw the headline I was hoping the article would indicate she was beginning to realize the error of her ways and take responsibility for her own issues. Sadly, it doesn't sound like that is remotely true. She just cannot afford to pursue it any further and had to cut her losses. She still refuses to accept any responsibility for her woes. I get the sense she would never have attended Harvard Law, gotten a job at Cravath or a job at Kleiner Perkins if she didn't let them check off a couple diversity boxes. If anything the discrimination she's experienced in her life has been in her favor. It's a shame because I'm sure a lot of other Asians and women actually who really earned it would have excelled.
