Macy's Versus Martha Trial Set to Begin Today
February 19, 2013,
NEW YORK-Macy's lawsuit against Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia over the latter's agreement with J.C. Penney for Martha Stewart home shops is scheduled to go to trial this morning.
It will be a nonjury trial before Jeffrey K. Oing, New York State Supreme Court Justice, in Manhattan. Macy's sued MSLO in January of last year, one month after MSLO and J.C. Penney announced their agreement calling for shops and a dedicated website offering Martha Stewart home and lifestyle products. Macy's has held the rights to Martha Stewart-branded cookware, kitchen utensils, bedding and bath products since 2007.
