Testimony Over in Macy’s Martha Stewart, J.C. Penney Suits

Testimony in the trial of Macy’s Inc.’s lawsuits against J.C. Penney Co. and Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Inc. has concluded, according to a clerk in New York state court.

J.C. Penney in December 2011 acquired a 17 percent stake in Martha Stewart Living for $38.5 million. Macy’s, which has sold Martha Stewart-branded home goods since 2007, sued her company the following month, saying it had the exclusive right to sell items in certain categories including bedding and cookware. Macy’s sued J.C. Penney about three months later.
