Papa John is suing Papa John’s!
Founder John Schattner has filed a lawsuit against the company to gain access to the books and records after he resigned for using the N-word during a company meeting.
Via NY Post:
In a complaint filed Thursday, John Schnatter says he wants access to the documents because of the “unexplained and heavy-handed way” that Papa John’s International Inc. has treated him.
The court filing comes as the company tries to distance itself from Schnatter, who resigned as chairman after Forbes published a July 11 article about the alleged slur.
Schnatter says he has been falsely accused and calls his resignation a mistake.
The company has adopted a “poison-pill” plan to try to prevent Schnatter from amassing a controlling stake.
