New York Court Announces Penney-Martha Stewart Deal Violated Contract with Macy's

A New York Court Judge ruled as improper and unethical, a 2011 merchandise deal between J.C. Penney and Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Inc. (MSO) that violated an earlier deal with Macy's (M). The issue erupted after Martha Stewart, in late 2011, agreed to make bedding and other products for Penney, which was then headed by Ron Johnson. But in a 2006 deal, Macy's had signed with Martha Stewart for the exclusive sale of the products in question. Judge said that Penney's efforts to secure a deal with Martha Stewart were unethical. The Judge however exempted Penney from punitive action over the matter. Judge said that while Macy's is entitled to monetary damages and attorneys' fees, it failed to prove its eligibility for punitive damages. Any claims for lost profit will be referred to a special referee, Oing added. Penney in December 2011 acquired a 17% stake in Martha Stewart Living for $38.5 million as part of Johnson's efforts to turnaround Penney, which envisaged new mini-stores housing brands including that of Martha Stewart's. Macy's sued Martha Stewart Living, citing that the 2006 deal gave it exclusive right to sell Stewart-branded goods in categories including bedding, kitchen textiles, among others. Macy's also sued Penney in August 2012. Penney said in October it was rolling back the deal with Martha Stewart Living and prematurely end the partnership in 2017.
