J.C. Penney appealed a New York state court ruling Monday that found it had interfered with a contract between Macy's and Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia by selling the celebrity's home goods, according to a filing. J.C. Penney's lawyer Martin Edel confirmed the case had been appealed but declined to comment. Retail spokesmen at each company weren't immediately available for comment. Macy's sued J.C. Penney in 2012 for breaching a deal that guaranteed exclusive rights to sell cookware, bedding and bath products from Martha Stewart Living.
