Report: Judge to review J.C. Penney-Martha Stewart contract situation

BY Dan Berthiaume

Plano, Texas — Legal wrangling about J.C. Penney Co. selling Martha Stewart-branded home goods is reportedly continuing. According to The Motley Fool, a hearing has been scheduled for Sept. 25 to review allegations in the New York Post that J.C. Penney plans to terminate its contract with Martha Stewart Living.

A long-running lawsuit centers on whether Penney had the right to develop in-store Martha Stewart-branded boutiques it planned in 2011, but never built. Lawyers for Macy’s say the boutiques violated an exclusivity agreement, while layers for Martha Stewart Living and J.C. Penney say the contract Macy’s drafted for Martha Stewart Living was vague and poorly written, leaving room for other retailers to sell some products.

New York State Supreme Court Justice Jeffrey Oing is expected to deliver a verdict in the case shorty. However, if J.C. Penney does intend to end its Martha Stewart Living contract, that could affect how he rules.

This guy can not make up his mind. Reports have it he saw something on TV, read it, that JCP has dumped MS? Is this how the court system works in NY? Doesn't JCP have lawyers where they could sent the judge a note they want out and jump start things? He seems over friendly to JCP at Macy's expense. He bring anything he see outside of court into a case before him? What a legal system they have in NY. Let's see, Ronnie boy knew he was pulling a fast one, MS mini shops are manned by JCP employees, they stock, restock it, JCP sets the prices, they keep up with inventory, they ring up MS sales anywhere in the store. Let us take a Sephora in a JCP store, this is operated by Sephora employees, stock, inventory control by them, sales rung up by them. See the difference? Stewart's crap is no more a mini store then Walmart grouping Campbell's soup on an end cap and building fancy shelving for it and claiming it was a mini store and is somehow legally special. There is a difference in leasing space within a building, I think they call it a mall, and windows like displays labeled mini stores located within a retailer. To allow any retailer to define a grouping display of products by designer name, company name, Logo, whatever, and allow that alone to define it as a separate operating entity, within the store, use it as legal leverage, is insane. JCP problems were created by JCP's boy genius and a board of directors that for some reason couldn't function. Wonder if that smile is off old Ronnie boy? One may smile and smile and still be a villain.
