So, one guy has already left the firm as a result of an internal investigation and now we are supposed to believe Mr. Doerr's statement that these are "unfounded claims"? Come on, let't not insult our intelligence.

And the response of "We will vigorously defend our reputation and are confident we will prevail." Hmmmm, sounds like an ego trip and not an interest to insure women are being treated fairly.

Let's hope a daughter of Mr. Doerr's isn't put in a situation like this, and then has a group of billionaires fighting to defend THEIR reputation. Well, the reputation is that Kleiner Perkins is a sexist environment - is that what will be defended?
