Waffle House CEO says he was blackmailed

Attorneys helped a housekeeper record her sexual encounters with Waffle House CEO Joe Rogers Jr., and tried to extort money from him under threat of releasing the tapes, Rogers claims in court.

Rogers sued Georgia attorneys David M. Cohen, Hylton B. Dupree Jr. and John C. Butters, and their firms, in Cobb County Superior Court.

Joe Rogers Jr. is chief executive officer of the Georgia-based Waffle House. The company, co-founded in 1955 by Rogers’ father, owns more than 1,700 diner-style restaurants across the Southern United States.
