Papa John's founder and former chairman sues pizza chain



The founder and former chairman of Papa John's has taken the company to court seeking access to documents related to his exit from the pizza chain.

 
John Schnatter resigned earlier this month after apologising for using the N-word in a conference call.


Lawyers for Mr Schnatter said they wanted to see the documents because of the "unexplained and heavy-handed way" that Papa John's had treated him.


Papa John's said it was "saddened and disappointed" by the lawsuit.


Mr Schnatter filed the complaint on Thursday in Delaware Chancery Court.
