Macy's CEO testifies in fight over Martha Stewart after learning of her deal with JC Penney

NEW YORK — Macy's CEO Terry Lundgren testified today that he hung up on home diva Martha Stewart after she called to inform him back in December 2011 that her company had signed a deal with J.C. Penney to open shops at most of the chain's stores.

“This was such a shock,” Lundgren testified. “I was sick to my stomach. I can't remember hanging up on anyone in my life.”

The testimony comes as Macy's and Penney duke it out in court over the partnership with Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. The trial, which began Wednesday, focuses on whether Macy's has the exclusive right to sell Martha Stewart branded cookware, bedding and other products.
