Papa John’s Founder Sues Pizza Chain Over Internal Documents Request


John Schnatter, the founder and ousted former chairman of Papa John’s International Inc, on Thursday sued the pizzeria chain, complaining that the company had not provided adequate response to an earlier request for internal documents.

The complaint, Schnatter v. Papa Johns International Inc filed in Delaware Chancery Court, comes after a request by Schnatter and his attorneys access to company documents to inspect accusations of inappropriate behavior.

“Mr. Schnatter’s attorneys are seeking to inspect Company documents because of the unexplained and heavy-handed way in which the Company has treated him since the publication of a story that falsely accused him of using a racial slur,” Schnatter’s attorneys said in a statement.

Papa John’s Pizza founder John Schnatter is suing the pizzeria chain after he resigned as chairman of the company’s board.

The lawsuit is the latest installation in a weeks-long drama surrounding the pizza chain following a report by Forbes this month that Schnatter had used the “n-word” during a media training call.

“Colonel Sanders called blacks n——-s,” Schnatter reportedly said during an exchange on how he could separate himself from online hate groups.
