SHERMAN — Texas Importers and distributors are suing an outsourcing company, alleging wrongful filing of an arbitration notice.
Omnipart USA LLC and OmniMax USA LLC filed a lawsuit Dec. 8 in the Sherman Division of the Eastern District of Texas against Interpart Worldwide LLC alleging wrongfully filed an arbitration notice regarding property in Anna, Texas.
