Martha vs. Macys: Pretrial Documents Begin to Appear as Court Date Approaches

As the February 20 court date approaches, we can expect to start seeing more of the pretrial details emerge. Today, Macy’s alleged that JC Penney demanded, and MSLO produced to them, proprietary information belonging to Macy’s. As expected, this will likely get messier before it gets better, as both sides battle to defend their interpretation of Martha’s contract with Macy’s, which runs through 2018. Whatever the outcome of the court case, MarthaHome shops will start appearing in JC Penney stores next month. The MarthaHome page is already live on the JC Penney website, as reported earlier.

From the Business Courier website:

In pretrial documents, Macy’s claimed it gathered evidence “documenting” a “mass of correspondence” between its rivals, in which J.C. Penney “demanded and MSLO transmitted Macy’s confidential, proprietary information.”
