NEW YORK — Judge Jeffrey Oing’s courtroom was considerably less hectic Wednesday following Martha Stewart’s testimony a day earlier.
With just a handful of reporters and fewer lawyers, Oing made an effort to speed up proceedings, as he addressed scheduling and housekeeping matters concerning the extension of the preliminary injunction, which he granted to Macy’s over the summer. The injunction keeps J.C. Penney Co. Inc. from selling Martha Stewart-branded goods in its stores for the time being. Earlier in the week, the judge hinted at the larger question regarding whether Penney’s should be able to sell goods designed by Stewart that have been re-branded with either the “JCP Everyday” trademark or a “double-house” logo. Those goods are part of exclusive product categories that Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Inc. agreed to design for Macy’s Inc. under their 2006 contract. A decision on the extension will likely indicate how the judge is leaning in the overall case.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
