SYDNEY (Reuters) - Woolworths Ltd
Woolworths's joint venture partner, Lowe's Companies Inc (NYSE: LOW), has filed a court application in relation to their hardware chain, the company said in a statement.
The Australian company did not give details of the court application but said it "is yet to be served with documents relating to this application".
In a statement, Lowe's said "Woolworths has engaged in oppressive conduct, including by invalidly and in bad faith attempting to terminate" the joint venture.
Woolworths said last week its three-way plan to shut down and sell parts of its home wares business will proceed as planned.
