YAHOO NEWS - Aug 14 - A lawsuit against Match Group includes an allegation of sexual misconduct against former CEO and Chairman Greg Blatt. The allegation was mentioned on page six of a lengthy complaint filed by Tinder's founders and early employees along with a handful of the dating app's current executives against Match Group and IAC, alleging a "scheme" to cheat them "out of billions of dollars by violating their contractual rights as option holders." The complaint goes on to accuse Blatt of groping and sexually harassing Tinder's VP of marketing and communications during and after Tinder's 2016 holiday party in LA. Defendants kept Blatt in place as Tinder's 'interim' CEO long enough to complete the private valuation and secret merger of Tinder. But just two weeks after their scheme concluded, defendants publicly announced Blatt's 'retirement' - rewarding him with a lucrative golden parachute.
