FORT WORTH, Texas, April 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Williamson-Dickie Mfg. Co. refutes a statement made in Ironclad Performance Wear Corporation's press release issued on April 8 concerning the settlement of Williamson-Dickie's lawsuit for fraud against Ironclad's current CEO Jeff Cordes and CFO William Aisenberg, filed in Dallas County, Texas District Court, Case No. DC-14-08309. Ironclad's press release stated that the allegations in the lawsuit were unsubstantiated. This statement is plainly false and misleading in that it suggests that Williamson-Dickie failed to allege facts to substantiate its claims. Williamson-Dickie's petition asserted various claims against the defendants in the lawsuit, including Cordes and Aisenberg, and supported those claims with specific alleged facts, including quotes from Cordes' and Aisenberg's own emails.
Ironclad has issued a letter of apology to Williamson-Dickie.
