BEAUMONT – A company with an office in Austin has moved for summary judgment in a breach of contract suit against an area company.

Mizuno USA filed suit against Games People Play Inc. on Oct. 5 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the lawsuit, on March 14, 2014 the parties entered into an agreement whereby Mizuno would provide athletic equipment to GPP on credit.

Mizuno sent a letter demanding payment last August but GPP allegedly refused to pay.

Court records show that on June 29 Mizuno filed a motion for summary judgment, arguing the evidence shows GPP has defaulted under the agreement, which is an enforceable contract.

Mizuno is seeking damages in the amount of $49,377.80, plus attorney’s fees in the amount of $7,500.

Adam Pugh, attorney for the Austin law firm Slater Pugh, represents Mizuno.

Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court, has been assigned to the case.

Case No. D-197670
