Judge Weighs Suit Filed By Former Subway Pitchman’s Ex-wife

Fogle

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.

Kathleen McLaughlin and Fogle divorced in 2015 after the Indiana man pleaded guilty to trading in child pornography and paying for sex with underage girls. He’s serving a 15-year sentence.

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.
