NEW YORK (Reuters) - Macy's Inc
Macy's sued Penney and Stewart's company, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia
Macy's claimed it has the exclusive right to sell Martha Stewart goods in certain categories such as bedding, bath and tableware under a 2006 agreement that lasts through 2018.
Previously, a judge had barred Penney from selling the disputed goods under a Martha Stewart label. Last Friday, he denied a request by Macy's to expand that ban to include products that would be branded "JCP Everyday," a decision that Macy's appealed on Monday.
Penney declined comment on Tuesday.
