NEW YORK — Although Ron Johnson, chief executive officer of J.C. Penney Co. Inc., was the headliner Monday, it wasn’t the high-profile executive who drew attention — it was presiding Judge Jeffrey Oing.
Following the end of Johnson’s testimony, Oing addressed concerns over the expiration of Macy’s preliminary injunction that kept Penney’s from selling Martha Stewart-branded goods in its stores. That injunction, which was issued over the summer by Oing, ends April 1. It not only keeps Penney’s from stocking the shelves with wares bearing Stewart’s name, but it impacts whether the retailer sells unbranded goods that were designed by Stewart.
