By Edwin Chan SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – A former executive who accused popular dating-app company Tinder of sexual harassment and discrimination has settled her lawsuit with the startup, ending a dispute that cast a spotlight over the treatment of women in the technology industry. Lawyers for the plaintiff, former marketing vice president Whitney Wolfe, said on Monday the lawsuit had been resolved but did not provide details. IAC/InterActiveCorp owns a majority stake in Los Angeles-based Tinder and was also named as a defendant, along with fellow dating site and IAC portfolio company Match.com. Among the allegations was that Chief Executive Officer Sean Rad and the company’s chief marketing officer, Justin Mateen, removed her title as co-founder because of her gender.
