$30M Awarded in Popeyes Fraud Case

$30M Awarded in Popeyes Fraud Case

A Dallas jury awarded Scott Stockton, a 73-year-old former fast food manager, over $30 million in a lawsuit against a major Popeyes franchisee.

Stockton, who managed up to 150 Popeyes locations for 17 years, claimed he was denied a promised 5% profit share upon retirement by Guillermo Perales, head of Sun Holdings Inc.

Despite Perales’ denial of the allegations, the jury favoured Stockton, granting him compensatory and punitive damages.

Perales’ team, disputing the verdict based on a biased view, plans to appeal.

This case highlights the legal accountability in business agreements.
