An Indiana judge has heard arguments in a lawsuit filed by former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle’s ex-wife alleging the company knew of Fogle’s sexual interest in children but continued promoting him as its spokesman.
WXIN-TV reports the judge didn’t rule immediately Tuesday after opposing attorneys presented arguments on Subway’s request that McLaughlin’s lawsuit be dismissed.
McLaughlin alleges Subway received at least three reports indicating Fogle was sexually interested in children but failed to take proper action and continued promoting him as its spokesman.
The 40-year-old Fogle became Subway’s spokesman after losing 200 pounds, partly by eating Subway sandwiches.
