Barry Diller denies his company cheated Tinder founders out of $2 billion

Billionaire Barry Diller took the stand last week to defend his media empire from a lawsuit claiming that it cheated the founders of Tinder out of $2 billion. His attorneys have used millions of dollars in litigation funding payments to key witnesses to cast doubt on former CEO Sean Rad’s case. Rad’s camp has argued that the payments are irrelevant to the suit, and the judge presiding over the trial found that the payments were not illegal, saying that it ”approaches the line between legitimate litigation funding and illegitimate payment of witnesses, [but] it does not cross it.” Bench Walk Advisors is the funder backing Rad in the Tinder case.
