The controversial government contract that led thousands of Google employees to sign a petition in opposition and dozens to quit in protest will not be renewed, Gizmodo reports.

But the project has been decried by many of the company’s employees who believe it could hurt efforts to hold the public’s trust and went against Google’s ”Don’t Be Evil” motto.
