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,

In July 2018, founder John Schnatter resigned as Company chairman for
using a racial slur during a conference call. Schnatter soon voiced
regret for resigning and a battle ensued between he and the Board (he
still retains his seat) over its efforts to limit his involvement. A
July 19, 2018 Forbes report highlighted "Schnatter's alleged
behavior rang[ing] from spying on his workers to sexually inappropriate
conduct" and "at least two confidential settlements." On August 7, 2018,
the Company reported disappointing Q2 2018 financial results. Schnatter
blamed CEO Steve Ritchie for the poor performance and claimed that the
Company has "detailed evidence of sexual misconduct, harassment and
intimidation by virtually everyone in (Ritchie's) inner circle," which
the Company denied. Schnatter recently filed suit against the board and
CEO alleging breaches of care and duty.

The Company has been exposed to significant financial losses as well as
a recent securities class action lawsuit for failing to disclose
material information to investors, violating federal securities laws.

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.
