Louisville, Kentucky (WAVE) — On Tuesday, a federal court hearing was held in a lawsuit filed by Papa John founder John Schnatter against the company’s former advertising agency, focusing on confidentiality.
According to WAVE 3 News reports, Schnatter claims that 247 groups broke the contract by leaking recordings of the 2018 conference call and were eventually dismissed from the company Schnatter founded.
The pizza chain is not directly involved in the proceedings, but states that it must enter into a non-disclosure agreement before filing a subpoena.
247 states that it is not possible to agree to issue a nondisclosure agreement without knowing the contents of the document.
Since his dismissal, Schnatter has conducted interviews containing information that the company claims to have false allegations that could harm Papa John’s.
Schnatter announced comments on the proceedings on Tuesday night.
“Papa John’s has been stalling for months to prevent courts from seeing the 13,000 documents summoned by Wasserman Media as part of the proceedings. The most annoying thing about it is that it’s by the company. It’s a consistent concealment pattern. A false attack on me in 2018.
In 2019, Papa John’s lost 220 decisions in a Delaware court, but produced a sparse number of relevant documents in accordance with the court’s orders. Currently, they are fighting hard to prevent disclosures that could reveal the truth about who did what. Trying to hurt me and the brand of the company.
Why does Papajon work hard to hide these documents from the public? When my comment on racism was secretly recorded and its meaning reversed and leaked to the media, they were able to set up with our previous advertising company, Wasserman Media Company “Laundry Service”. Are you hiding something about your role? ..
In all the revelations of our proceedings, the actions of Laundry Services and Papa John’s cannot see the light of day. I have a tape that completely exempts me, and in further revelation we have the complete truth about the likely role of papajon in this fraud that has hurt so many people, including franchisees and employees. Will know. “
WAVE 3 News reports that the judge proposed that both sides make an agreement and stated that the document would only be used in proceedings.
