Sheryl Sandberg, former vice president of global sales and operations at Google and current Chief Operating Officer at Facebook is reportedly being tapped for a case against tech giants including Google, Apple and Intel. The case is a civil suit filed in 2011 by five workers claiming the companies made non-poaching agreements, colluding to agree not to hire each others employees to keep wages down.

Sandberg is not named as a defendant in the case.
