Sues Papa John’s
… They Did Me Dirty

The founder of Papa John’s is feeling burned by his former company … and he’s demanding some answers from the pizza giant’s board of directors.
John Schnatter filed a lawsuit in Delaware Thursday to get Papa John’s to disclose all documents related to its response to him using the n-word. Schnatter wants to see the docs, “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.”
In the suit, Schnatter says it’s impossible the board took an appropriate amount of time to make informed decisions … which included terminating certain business agreements.
As we reported … he resigned as chairman of Papa John’s International, and also left the University of Louisville’s Board of Trustees, after he was called out for using the n-word on a conference call in May. Schnatter insists reports falsely characterized the way he used the word.
Schnatter isn’t looking for any serious dough in the lawsuit for now … he just wants them to hand over company records.
