Testimony has resumed in the Martha Stewart stock fraud trial in a federal court in New York.

Former ImClone secretary Emily Perret took the stand, saying Stewart was "very hurried and harsh and direct" in a call to ImClone on the day she dumped her stock in the company.

Perret says Stewart asked her what was going on with ImClone stock. She says she replied that she didn't know. Prosecutors say the call happened just after Stewart sold nearly four thousand ImClone shares.

She's accused of lying to investigators about why she sold the stock just before the price plummeted.

On cross examination, Perret said Stewart's tone on the day in question was no different from her tone on other days when she called.

Earlier today, the judge ruled the prosecution's star witness, a former brokerage worker, will be allowed to testify starting Tuesday afternoon.
