Former Google employee James Damore has lawyered up. Damore was fired by the company earlier this month after he wrote a memo criticizing Google's diversity policies. Now he's represented by a high-level Republican party official: San Francisco lawyer Harmeet Dhillon. 

Dhillon's firm says it's investigating Google's employment practices. For more, Take Two spoke with Marisa Lagos, California politics and government reporter for KQED.
