Match Group Inc, an online dating company, along with its parent company IAC/InterActive Corp has filed a lawsuit against Sean Rad who is one of the founders of Tinder, a popular dating service of Match Group.

Filed in New York state court in Manhattan late on Tuesday, the lawsuit alleged Rad of copying files and other proprietary information of Match Group.
