El Salvador based manufacturer Partex Apparel International has been awarded US$1.1m, plus interest, from Gear for Sports which allegedly failed to pay for several shipments of sports apparel. 

Sports apparel firm Gear for Sports is owned by HanesBrands. 

The lawsuit was originally filed in the Southern District of Florida in 2010 because Partex maintains a corporate bank account in Miami. In July 2010, Gear for Sports requested and was granted permission to move the case to Kansas court. The ruling was announced on 28 March in Kansas district court.

Franklin Zemel, partner of law firm Arnstein & Lehr, received the judgement for Partex Apparel.
