Harvey Hernandez’s NGD Homesharing Hit with $963k Judgement
Harvey Hernandez, CEO of NGD Homesharing, who The Real Deal describes as no stranger to litigation, has faced multiple lawsuits from his former partners, including Airbnb.
One such case comes from Cindy Diffenderfer, NGD’s co-founder, 10% equity holder, and former chief marketing officer, who filed a lawsuit against Hernandez and NGD Homesharing in 2019 after blowing the whistle on their conduct. NGD and Hernandez settled that lawsuit in early-2021 but subsequently defaulted on the settlement payments, resulting in final judgments being entered against them in January 2022, awarding Diffenderfer $961k in addition to the $500k Diffenderfer already recovered from payments made under the parties’ settlement agreement.
Davis Goldman partner Jason Goldman represented Diffenderfer in the case against Hernandez and NGD Homesharing. “My client is relieved and thankful that Judge Miller reached the right decision,” he told The Real Deal. “My client deserves what she is receiving now, which is justice.”
