A Delaware judge said on Tuesday Papa John's International Inc must turn over internal documents to the company's founder who has been seeking to reassert control over the pizza delivery chain after he resigned as chairman in July. John Schnatter, who owns about 30 percent of the company, has been seeking the documents to try to show the company was mismanaged and to determine if he was improperly pushed out.
After months in court, a Delaware judge ruled Tuesday that Papa John's must turn over internal documents to its founder, John Schnatter.
A Delaware judge ruled Tuesday that the embattled founder of the Papa John's pizza chain is entitled to corporate records that the company has refused to turn over to him. John Schnatter sued Papa John's International Inc. last year, claiming he needs the records to inform himself in order to fulfill his fiduciary duties to the company, and to ensure that other directors are doing the same. The company argued that Schnatter, who was pressured to resign as chairman last summer, wanted the records to further his personal self-interests.
