Google asked Facebook to limit hiring from search giant

The social networking executive says Google asked her to limit the number of employees Facebook hires from the search engine giant.

Sandberg made the statement in a new court document. In the filing, Sandberg says a senior vice president at Google contacted her in 2008 and asked her to limit Facebook's recruitment of Google employees.

Sandberg says she declined. This new filing is related to a lawsuit from Silicon Valley workers.

They argue Apple, Google, Intel and Adobe limited recruitment from each other to intentionally keep wages low.
