NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (AP) — The ex-wife of former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle is suing the restaurant chain for damages, saying the company received three reports indicating his sexual interest in children but failed to take proper action.

The lawsuit was filed Monday in Hamilton County Superior Court on behalf of Katie McLaughlin. McLauglin said at a news conference that she’s trying to get information about Subway’s actions and inactions so she can someday have answers for her two young children.

The lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages, alleges Subway allowed Fogle to spend significant time in elementary schools promoting the chain after the allegations.

Subway issued a statement saying it couldn’t comment on pending litigation.
