Martha Stewart se kombuistoebehore kom moontlik nie so vinnig soos aangekondig na 'n JC Penney nie, aangesien 'n regter in New York ten gunste van Macy's beslis het, wat 'n bevel gevra het omdat dit eksklusiewe regte op die huishoudelike items van Martha het.

Martha Stewart en JC Penney het hul vennootskap in Desember aangekondig en gesê dat Penney's winkels in die winkel sal oopmaak vir Stewart se huishoudelikeware en kookgerei. Maar Macy het aansoek gedoen en beweer dat dit die eksklusiewe regte het om Martha Stewart -kookgerei en huishoudelike goedere te versprei kragtens 'n ooreenkoms wat uit 2006 dateer en eers in 2018 sou verstryk.

Die regter het gister 'n tydelike bevel teen die JC Penney -ooreenkoms uitgevaardig, wat daarop dui dat Macy's 'waarskynlikheid van uiteindelike sukses in sy regsgeding' toon, volgens Reuters.

The NY Post berig dat Macy's 'tevrede' is met die resultate en dat dit steeds produkte van Martha Stewart in sy winkels sal verkoop.

Crain het vroeër berig dat moontlike uitkomste van die Macy se oorwinning kan behels dat Martha Stewart belet word om haar handelsmerkprodukte by JC Penney te verkoop totdat die kontrak van Macy in 2018 verstryk, of dat JC Penney en Martha Stewart betaal moet word aan Macy's.

Die NY Post berig dat sy bronne aangedui het dat Macy's besluit het dat sommige Martha Stewart -produkte volgende jaar by JC Penney verkoop kan word.

In 'n verklaring aan die Pos het 'n Martha Stewart -woordvoerder gesê dat die JC Penney -ooreenkoms sal voortgaan ondanks die oorwinning van Macy:

"Ons sal ons produkte in die eerste kwartaal van 2013 in die winkel en aanlyn met JC Penney bekendstel. Niks aan die uitspraak van vandag verander dit nie."


Martha Stewart: J.C. Penney -ooreenkoms het nie Macy se kontrak oortree nie

Die huisversierings- en kookkenner Martha Stewart het getuig dat 'n ooreenkoms met J.C. Penney nie haar kontrak verbreek het om haar huisversieringsreeks uitsluitlik by Macy's te verkoop nie.

Huisversiering en kosghoeroe, Martha Stewart, het Dinsdag in die hof getuig dat sy niks verkeerd gedoen het toe sy 'n ooreenkoms onderteken het om winkels in die meeste van J.C. Penney se winkels regoor die land oop te maak nie.

Stewart getuig in die hooggeregshof in die staat New York in 'n verhoor oor die vraag of die onderneming wat sy gestig het sy kontrak verbreek het om kookgerei, beddegoed en ander items uitsluitlik by Macy's te verkoop toe sy die ooreenkoms met Penney aangegaan het.

Stewart se voorkoms, wat gevolg het op 'n reeks ander topkoper, waaronder die uitvoerende hoofde van Macy's Inc. en J.C. Penney Co., het baie aandag van die media gelok. Soveel so dat die regter die juriebank oopgemaak het om plek te maak vir die uitgebreide gehoor, en toeskouers moes agter 'n tou wag om die hofsaal binne te gaan.

Gedurende vier uur se getuienis het Stewart, wat Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Inc. gestig het, Macy se bewerings ontken dat sy iets oneties gedoen het en gesê dat sy net haar handelsmerk wil uitbrei.

Stewart het gesê dit is Macy's wat nie die einde van die ooreenkoms gehandhaaf het om die potensiaal van haar onderneming te probeer maksimeer nie. Sy het gesê dat haar handelsmerk by Macy's tot ongeveer $ 300 miljoen gegroei het, maar die onderneming was nou "staties" by die winkel. Sy het gesê dat sy gehoop het dat die onderneming $ 400 miljoen sou beloop.

Kritiese rasteorie: Wie kan besluit wat geskiedenis is?

"Ons was teleurgesteld," het Stewart (71), gedra met 'n ligbruin tuniek en 'n mini -romp, getuig. 'Ons het 'n sekere dollarbedrag bereik en gesukkel en nooit verder gekom nie.'

Die verhoor, wat op 20 Februarie begin het, handel oor die vraag of Macy's die uitsluitlike reg het om produkte van Martha Stewart, soos kookgerei, beddegoed en badgoed, te verkoop.

Penney het in Desember 2011 'n ooreenkoms met Martha Stewart Living gesluit om teen hierdie lente winkels by die meeste van sy 1100 winkels te open. 'N Maand later hernu Macy's sy jarelange eksklusiewe ooreenkoms met Martha Stewart tot 2018, waarna hulle Martha Stewart Living en Penney dagvaar.

Macy's probeer Penney's verhinder om die winkels in Martha Stewart oop te maak. Die maatskappy probeer ook om te keer dat Martha Stewart ontwerpe aan Penney verskaf - of dit nou die Martha Stewart -etiket is of nie.

Martha Stewart en Penney gebruik wat hulle glo 'n leemte in die ooreenkoms tussen Macy's en Martha Stewart is om voort te gaan met hul ooreenkoms. Dit is 'n bepaling wat Martha Stewart ook in staat stel om 'n paar van die produkte wat dit in Macy se winkels aanbied, by Martha Stewart -winkels te verkoop.

Volgens Martha Stewart -prokureurs, omdat die Macy -ooreenkoms nie spesifiseer dat Martha Stewart -winkels op hul eie moet wees nie, sou die mini -winkels in Penney se winkels nie die kontrak oortree nie. Stewart het Dinsdag in die hof gesê dat selfs Amazon.com as 'n winkel beskou kan word, aangesien kopers meer na aanlyn -aankope gaan.

'Ek dink nie jy het mure nodig om 'n winkel te wees nie,' het sy gesê.

Die verhoor het 'n deel van die drama onthul wat agter die skerms plaasgevind het toe die Martha Stewart-Penney-ooreenkoms tot stand gekom het. Tydens sy getuienis Vrydag het Johnson, uitvoerende hoof van Penney, die eise van Macy se prokureurs verwerp dat hy beplan om Martha Stewart te dwing om haar ooreenkoms met Macy's te verbreek met die doel om uiteindelik die enigste draer van sommige van Stewart se produkte te word.

Johnson, geklee in 'n donker pak en gestreepte marineband, het getuig dat hy net 'n stukkie van die aksie wou kry terwyl hy die besigheid van Martha Stewart help groei. Hy het ook gesê dat die uitgebreide vennootskap goed kan wees vir alle betrokkenes, insluitend Macy's.

Macy se prokureurs het Stewart uitgebeeld as iemand wat 'n goeie vriend, Terry Lundgren, uitvoerende hoof van Macy, teruggedraai het om 'n ooreenkoms met 'n mededingende onderneming te bewerkstellig. Tydens getuienis vroeër in die verhoor het Lundgren, wat 'n pak gedra het, gesê dat hy Stewart afgelê het nadat sy hom vertel het van die ooreenkoms wat sy met Penney bereik het. Hy het gesê dat hy sedertdien nog nie met haar gepraat het nie.

'Ek was nogal teruggeneem deur sy reaksie, en toe hy my opgehou het, was ek behoorlik verbaas', het Stewart Dinsdag getuig.

Stewart het ook getuig dat sy nie die dreigende Penney -ooreenkoms vroeër met Lundgren kon bespreek nie omdat die onderhandelinge 'vertroulik' was. Maar Theodore Grossman, 'n prokureur van Macy's, het Dinsdag 'n e -pos gestuur waarin getoon word dat Stewart die idee in die somer van 2011 met Millard Drexler, uitvoerende hoof van die J. Crew -kledingketting, bespreek het. Stewart noem Drexler 'n 'nuttige adviseur'.

Stewart se getuienis kom terwyl die onderneming wat sy gestig het, steeds sukkel. Martha Stewart Living het pas sy vyfde agtereenvolgende jaar verloor. Die onderneming het ook skerp afname in verkope gehad.

Martha Stewart Living het 'n knou gekry toe Stewart in 2003 aangekla is op aanklagte wat valse verklarings en belemmering van geregtigheid in verband met 'n persoonlike aandeleverkoop insluit. Sy is in Maart 2004 skuldig bevind en is tot vyf maande gevangenisstraf gevonnis. Nadat Stewart in Maart 2005 vrygelaat is, het die besigheid begin herstel toe adverteerders wat gevlug het, teruggekeer het.

'Ek het in 2003 gestruikel,' het Stewart Dinsdag gesê en bygevoeg dat 'ons uit hierdie geheel en gesond is.'

Die afgelope paar jaar sukkel Martha Stewart Living se afdelings vir uitsaai en publiseer met 'n verskuiwing deur mense om hul resepte en koswenke op die internet en op hul mobiele toestelle te kry. As gevolg hiervan, probeer die onderneming, gevestig in New York, sy handelsonderneming, wat 30 persent van die jaarlikse inkomste van die onderneming verteenwoordig, versterk.

Die grootste geleenthede vir Martha Stewart Living is om produkte vir die huis te verkoop, insluitend beddegoed, bad en kombuisware. Dit is omdat mense, namate die herstel van behuising momentum kry in die ekonomiese herstel, waarskynlik meer geld in hul huise sal sit.

Tydens haar getuienis Dinsdag het Stewart gesê dat sy altyd groot winkels in Macy se winkels wou oopmaak, maar die kleinhandelaar het nooit die idee aanvaar nie. In plaas daarvan het sy gesê die goedere in Macy se winkels is net 'hier en daar'.

Laat die monitorstories wat vir u omgee, by u inkassie afgelewer.

Daarom het sy gesê dat 'n voorstel van Penney's Johnson om winkels met huisware te skep, 'n beroep op haar was. Sy noem Johnson 'n 'visioenêr'.

'Ons het gehoop dat hierdie onderneming sou groei,' het Stewart gesê. 'Dit ontstel my net dat ons hier voor u sit, beoordelaar.'

Crew -kledingketting, bespreek het. Stewart noem Drexler 'n 'nuttige adviseur'.

Stewart se getuienis kom terwyl die onderneming wat sy gestig het, steeds sukkel. Martha Stewart Living het pas sy vyfde agtereenvolgende jaar verloor. Die onderneming het ook skerp afname in verkope gehad.

Martha Stewart Living het 'n knou gekry toe Stewart in 2003 aangekla is op aanklagte wat valse verklarings en belemmering van geregtigheid in verband met 'n persoonlike aandeleverkoop insluit. Sy is in Maart 2004 skuldig bevind en is tot vyf maande gevangenisstraf gevonnis. Nadat Stewart in Maart 2005 vrygelaat is, het die besigheid begin herstel toe adverteerders wat gevlug het, teruggekeer het.

'Ek het in 2003 gestruikel,' het Stewart Dinsdag gesê en bygevoeg dat 'ons uit hierdie geheel en gesond is.'

Die afgelope paar jaar sukkel Martha Stewart Living se afdelings vir uitsaai en publiseer met 'n verskuiwing deur mense om hul resepte en koswenke op die internet en op hul mobiele toestelle te kry. As gevolg hiervan, probeer die onderneming, gevestig in New York, sy handelsonderneming, wat 30 persent van die jaarlikse inkomste van die onderneming verteenwoordig, versterk.

Die grootste geleenthede vir Martha Stewart Living is om produkte vir die huis te verkoop, insluitend beddegoed, bad en kombuisware. Dit is omdat mense, namate die herstel van behuising momentum kry in die ekonomiese herstel, waarskynlik meer geld in hul huise sal sit.

Tydens haar getuienis Dinsdag het Stewart gesê dat sy altyd groot winkels in Macy se winkels wou oopmaak, maar die kleinhandelaar het nooit die idee aanvaar nie. In plaas daarvan het sy gesê die goedere in Macy se winkels is net 'hier en daar'.

Laat die monitorstories wat vir u omgee, by u inkassie afgelewer.

Daarom het sy gesê dat 'n voorstel van Penney's Johnson om winkels vol huisware te skep, 'n beroep op haar was. Sy noem Johnson 'n 'visioenêr'.

'Ons het gehoop dat hierdie onderneming sou groei,' het Stewart gesê. 'Dit ontstel my net dat ons hier voor u sit, beoordelaar.'


Martha Stewart: J.C. Penney -ooreenkoms het nie Macy se kontrak oortree nie

Die huisversierings- en kookkenner Martha Stewart het getuig dat 'n ooreenkoms met J.C. Penney nie haar kontrak verbreek het om haar huisversieringsreeks uitsluitlik by Macy's te verkoop nie.

Huisversiering en kosghoeroe Martha Stewart het Dinsdag in die hof getuig dat sy niks verkeerd gedoen het toe sy 'n ooreenkoms onderteken het om winkels in die meeste van die winkels van J.C. Penney regoor die land te open nie.

Stewart getuig in die hooggeregshof in die staat New York in 'n verhoor oor die vraag of die onderneming wat sy gestig het sy kontrak verbreek het om kookgerei, beddegoed en ander items uitsluitlik by Macy's te verkoop toe sy die ooreenkoms met Penney aangegaan het.

Stewart se voorkoms, wat gevolg het op 'n reeks ander topkoper, waaronder die uitvoerende hoofde van Macy's Inc. en J.C. Penney Co., het baie aandag van die media gelok. Soveel so dat die regter die juriebank oopgemaak het om plek te maak vir die uitgebreide gehoor, en toeskouers moes agter 'n tou wag om die hofsaal binne te gaan.

Gedurende vier uur se getuienis het Stewart, wat Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Inc. gestig het, Macy se bewerings ontken dat sy iets oneties gedoen het en gesê dat sy net haar handelsmerk wil uitbrei.

Stewart het gesê dit is Macy's wat nie die einde van die ooreenkoms gehandhaaf het om die potensiaal van haar onderneming te probeer maksimeer nie. Sy het gesê dat haar handelsmerk by Macy's tot ongeveer $ 300 miljoen gegroei het, maar die onderneming was nou "staties" by die winkel. Sy het gesê dat sy gehoop het dat die onderneming $ 400 miljoen sou beloop.

Kritiese rasteorie: Wie kan besluit wat geskiedenis is?

"Ons was teleurgesteld," het Stewart (71), gedra met 'n ligbruin tuniek en 'n mini -romp, getuig. 'Ons het 'n sekere dollarbedrag bereik en gesukkel en nooit verder gekom nie.

Die verhoor, wat op 20 Februarie begin het, handel oor die vraag of Macy's die uitsluitlike reg het om produkte van Martha Stewart, soos kookgerei, beddegoed en badgoed, te verkoop.

Penney het in Desember 2011 'n ooreenkoms met Martha Stewart Living gesluit om teen hierdie lente winkels by die meeste van sy 1100 winkels te open. 'N Maand later hernu Macy's sy jarelange eksklusiewe ooreenkoms met Martha Stewart tot 2018, waarna hulle Martha Stewart Living en Penney dagvaar.

Macy's probeer Penney's verhinder om die winkels in Martha Stewart oop te maak. Die maatskappy probeer ook om te keer dat Martha Stewart ontwerpe aan Penney verskaf - of dit nou die Martha Stewart -etiket is of nie.

Martha Stewart en Penney gebruik wat hulle glo 'n leemte in die ooreenkoms tussen Macy's en Martha Stewart is om voort te gaan met hul ooreenkoms. Dit is 'n bepaling wat Martha Stewart ook in staat stel om 'n paar van die produkte wat dit in Macy se winkels aanbied, by Martha Stewart -winkels te verkoop.

Volgens Martha Stewart -prokureurs, omdat die Macy -ooreenkoms nie spesifiseer dat Martha Stewart -winkels 'alleenstaande' plekke moet wees nie, sou die mini -winkels in Penney se winkels nie die kontrak oortree nie. Stewart said in court Tuesday that even Amazon.com could be considered a store, given that shoppers are shifting more to online buying.

"I don't think you need walls to be a store," she said.

The trial has revealed some of the drama that took place behind-the-scenes as the Martha Stewart-Penney deal came to be. During his testimony on Friday, Penney CEO Johnson rejected claims by Macy's lawyers that he plotted to push Martha Stewart to breach her deal with Macy's with the goal of eventually becoming the sole carrier of some of Stewart's products.

Johnson, who was dressed in a dark suit and striped navy tie, testified that he just wanted to get a piece of the action while helping the Martha Stewart's business grow. He also said that the expanded partnership could be good for all parties involved, including Macy's.

Macy's attorneys, meanwhile, have portrayed Stewart as someone who turned her back on a good friend, Macy's CEO Terry Lundgren, to broker a deal with a rival company. During testimony earlier in the trial, Lundgren, who wore a suit, said that he hung up on Stewart after she told him about the deal she'd reached with Penney. He said he hasn't spoken to her since.

"I was quite taken back by his response and when he hung up on me I was quite flabbergasted," Stewart testified Tuesday.

Stewart also testified that she couldn't discuss the impending Penney deal with Lundgren sooner because the negotiations were "confidential." But Theodore Grossman, an attorney representing Macy's, presented an email on Tuesday that showed that Stewart had discussed the idea in the summer of 2011 with Millard Drexler, CEO of the J. Crew clothing chain. Stewart called Drexler a "helpful adviser."

Stewart's testimony comes as the company she founded continues to struggle. Martha Stewart Living just finished its fifth straight year of losses. The company has also had steep sales declines.

Martha Stewart Living took a hit when Stewart was indicted in 2003 on charges that included making false statements and obstruction of justice related to a personal stock sale. She was convicted in March 2004 and was sentenced to five months in prison. After Stewart's release in March 2005, business began to recover as advertisers who had fled returned.

"I stumbled in 2003," Stewart said Tuesday, adding that "We emerged from that whole and healthy."

Still, in the past few years, Martha Stewart Living's broadcast and publishing divisions have been grappling with a shift by people to getting their recipes and food tips on the Web and on their mobile devices. As a result, the company, based in New York City, has been trying to bolster its merchandising business, which represents 30 percent of the company's annual revenue.

The biggest opportunities for Martha Stewart Living are in selling products for the home, including bedding, bath and kitchen merchandise. That's because as the housing recovery gains momentum in the economic recovery, people likely will put more money into their homes.

During her testimony on Tuesday, Stewart said she always wanted to open big shops within Macy's stores, but the retailer never embraced that concept. Instead, she said the merchandise in Macy's stores is just "here and there."

That's why she said that a proposal from Penney's Johnson to create shops filled with home merchandise was appealing to her. She called Johnson a "visionary."

"We hoped this business would be growing," Stewart said. "It just boggles my mind that we're here sitting in front of you, judge."


Martha Stewart: J.C. Penney deal didn't violate Macy's contract

Home decorating and cooking expert Martha Stewart testified that striking a deal with J.C. Penney did not breach her contract to sell her home decor line exclusively at Macy's.

Home decor and food guru Martha Stewart testified in court on Tuesday that she did nothing wrong when she signed an agreement to open shops within most of J.C. Penney's stores across the country.

Stewart testified in New York State Supreme Court in a trial over whether the company she founded breached its contract to sell cookware, bedding and other items exclusively at Macy's when she inked the deal with Penney.

Stewart's appearance, which followed a lineup of other top brass including the CEOs of both Macy's Inc. and J.C. Penney Co., attracted a lot of attention from the media. So much so that the judge opened up the jury box to make room for the expanded audience, and spectators had to wait behind a roped line to enter the courtroom.

During four hours of testimony, Stewart, who founded Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Inc., denied Macy's allegations that she did anything unethical and said she was only looking to expand her brand.

Stewart said it's Macy's that didn't uphold its end of the agreement to try to maximize the potential of her business. She said her brand had grown to about $300 million at Macy's, but the business was now "static" at the department store chain. She said she had hoped the business would exceed $400 million.

Critical race theory: Who gets to decide what is history?

"We were disappointed," Stewart, 71, wearing a light brown tunic and a mini skirt, testified. "We got to a certain dollar amount and struggled and never got any further."

The trial, which began Feb. 20, centers around whether Macy's has the exclusive right to sell some Martha Stewart branded products such as cookware, bedding and bath items.

Penney signed a pact in December 2011 with Martha Stewart Living to open shops at most of its 1,100 stores by this spring. A month later, Macy's renewed its long-standing exclusive deal with Martha Stewart until 2018, then it sued both Martha Stewart Living and Penney.

Macy's is trying to block Penney's from opening the Martha Stewart shops within its stores. The company also is seeking to stop Martha Stewart from providing any designs to Penney — whether or not they carry the Martha Stewart label.

Martha Stewart and Penney are using what they believe is a loophole in the agreement between Macy's and Martha Stewart to move forward with their deal. It's a provision that allows Martha Stewart to sell some of the products that it offers in Macy's stores at Martha Stewart shops, too.

According to Martha Stewart lawyers, because the Macy's agreement doesn't specify that Martha Stewart stores have to be "stand alone" locations, the mini shops within Penney's stores would not violate the contract. Stewart said in court Tuesday that even Amazon.com could be considered a store, given that shoppers are shifting more to online buying.

During her testimony on Tuesday, Stewart said she always wanted to open big shops within Macy's stores, but the retailer never embraced that concept. Instead, she said the merchandise in Macy's stores is just "here and there."

That's why she said that a proposal from Penney's Johnson to create shops filled with home merchandise was appealing to her. She called Johnson a "visionary."

"We hoped this business would be growing," Stewart said. "It just boggles my mind that we're here sitting in front of you, judge."


Martha Stewart: J.C. Penney deal didn't violate Macy's contract

Home decorating and cooking expert Martha Stewart testified that striking a deal with J.C. Penney did not breach her contract to sell her home decor line exclusively at Macy's.

Home decor and food guru Martha Stewart testified in court on Tuesday that she did nothing wrong when she signed an agreement to open shops within most of J.C. Penney's stores across the country.

Stewart testified in New York State Supreme Court in a trial over whether the company she founded breached its contract to sell cookware, bedding and other items exclusively at Macy's when she inked the deal with Penney.

Stewart's appearance, which followed a lineup of other top brass including the CEOs of both Macy's Inc. and J.C. Penney Co., attracted a lot of attention from the media. So much so that the judge opened up the jury box to make room for the expanded audience, and spectators had to wait behind a roped line to enter the courtroom.

During four hours of testimony, Stewart, who founded Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Inc., denied Macy's allegations that she did anything unethical and said she was only looking to expand her brand.

Stewart said it's Macy's that didn't uphold its end of the agreement to try to maximize the potential of her business. She said her brand had grown to about $300 million at Macy's, but the business was now "static" at the department store chain. She said she had hoped the business would exceed $400 million.

Critical race theory: Who gets to decide what is history?

"We were disappointed," Stewart, 71, wearing a light brown tunic and a mini skirt, testified. "We got to a certain dollar amount and struggled and never got any further."

The trial, which began Feb. 20, centers around whether Macy's has the exclusive right to sell some Martha Stewart branded products such as cookware, bedding and bath items.

Penney signed a pact in December 2011 with Martha Stewart Living to open shops at most of its 1,100 stores by this spring. A month later, Macy's renewed its long-standing exclusive deal with Martha Stewart until 2018, then it sued both Martha Stewart Living and Penney.

Macy's is trying to block Penney's from opening the Martha Stewart shops within its stores. The company also is seeking to stop Martha Stewart from providing any designs to Penney — whether or not they carry the Martha Stewart label.

Martha Stewart and Penney are using what they believe is a loophole in the agreement between Macy's and Martha Stewart to move forward with their deal. It's a provision that allows Martha Stewart to sell some of the products that it offers in Macy's stores at Martha Stewart shops, too.

According to Martha Stewart lawyers, because the Macy's agreement doesn't specify that Martha Stewart stores have to be "stand alone" locations, the mini shops within Penney's stores would not violate the contract. Stewart said in court Tuesday that even Amazon.com could be considered a store, given that shoppers are shifting more to online buying.

"I don't think you need walls to be a store," she said.

The trial has revealed some of the drama that took place behind-the-scenes as the Martha Stewart-Penney deal came to be. During his testimony on Friday, Penney CEO Johnson rejected claims by Macy's lawyers that he plotted to push Martha Stewart to breach her deal with Macy's with the goal of eventually becoming the sole carrier of some of Stewart's products.

Johnson, who was dressed in a dark suit and striped navy tie, testified that he just wanted to get a piece of the action while helping the Martha Stewart's business grow. He also said that the expanded partnership could be good for all parties involved, including Macy's.

Macy's attorneys, meanwhile, have portrayed Stewart as someone who turned her back on a good friend, Macy's CEO Terry Lundgren, to broker a deal with a rival company. During testimony earlier in the trial, Lundgren, who wore a suit, said that he hung up on Stewart after she told him about the deal she'd reached with Penney. He said he hasn't spoken to her since.

"I was quite taken back by his response and when he hung up on me I was quite flabbergasted," Stewart testified Tuesday.

Stewart also testified that she couldn't discuss the impending Penney deal with Lundgren sooner because the negotiations were "confidential." But Theodore Grossman, an attorney representing Macy's, presented an email on Tuesday that showed that Stewart had discussed the idea in the summer of 2011 with Millard Drexler, CEO of the J. Crew clothing chain. Stewart called Drexler a "helpful adviser."

Stewart's testimony comes as the company she founded continues to struggle. Martha Stewart Living just finished its fifth straight year of losses. The company has also had steep sales declines.

Martha Stewart Living took a hit when Stewart was indicted in 2003 on charges that included making false statements and obstruction of justice related to a personal stock sale. She was convicted in March 2004 and was sentenced to five months in prison. After Stewart's release in March 2005, business began to recover as advertisers who had fled returned.

"I stumbled in 2003," Stewart said Tuesday, adding that "We emerged from that whole and healthy."

Still, in the past few years, Martha Stewart Living's broadcast and publishing divisions have been grappling with a shift by people to getting their recipes and food tips on the Web and on their mobile devices. As a result, the company, based in New York City, has been trying to bolster its merchandising business, which represents 30 percent of the company's annual revenue.
