The judge presiding over Hartmarx’s bankruptcy proceedings has denied Burberry’s request to terminate its tailored clothing license with the troubled company, effectively ensuring the partnership through 2010.
Burberry Limited filed a motion with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Illinois two weeks ago seeking to end the 12-year partnership. The company argued in the filing that because Hartmarx might be sold, Burberry has the right to terminate the license now in order to line up a new manufacturer.
