PAPA JOHN'S INVESTIGATION INITIATED by Former Louisiana Attorney General: Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC Investigates the Officers and Directors of Papa John's International, Inc. - PZZA


Former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr., Esq., a
partner at the law firm of Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC ("KSF"), announces
that KSF has commenced an investigation into Papa John's International,

On July 10, 2018, public outrage over media reports that Schnatter had
used a racial slur during a conference call in May 2018 resulted in his
resignation as Chairman of the Board. Soon after, Schnatter publicly
voiced his regret over the resignation and his intention to oppose
efforts by the Board to further limit his involvement with the Company,
leading to a battle between he and the Board (on which he still retains
a seat) that is ongoing, with Schnatter recently filing suit against the
Company seeking documents related to his removal and accusing the board
of acting negligently or staging a possible "coup." Further, on July 19,
2018, a report by Forbes highlighted "Papa John's Toxic Culture,"
stating that "Schnatter's alleged behavior ranges from spying on his
workers to sexually inappropriate conduct, which has resulted in at
least two confidential settlements," which it based on "interviews with
37 current and former Papa John's employees—including numerous
executives and board members."

KSF's investigation is focusing on whether Papa John's officers and/or
directors breached their fiduciary duties to Papa John's shareholders or
otherwise violated state or federal laws.
