Waffle House CEO Says Lawyers Tried To Extort Him

MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) — The CEO of Waffle House says in a lawsuit that his former housekeeper’s lawyers tried to extort millions of dollars from him to keep quiet about sexual contact between the two.

The woman’s lawyers told the Daily Report they were just making a settlement demand.

The suit filed last month is the latest step in a legal battle between Joe Rogers Jr. and the woman who worked as his housekeeper. The woman has accused Rogers of forcing her to perform sex acts to keep her job.

The suit accuses lawyers David Cohen, Hylton Dupree and John Butters of scheming with their client to make an illegal video in an attempt to extort money from Rogers.

The Associated Press does not generally identify alleged victims of sexual assault.
