It's probably a transient set by the stall.
Pull the 15A ECM fuse. It's fuse #17, the end one of the group of three
right at the very back or the very front (I forget which) of the under-
hood fuse box. Wait 30 seconds then put it back.
This will clear any DTC's and turn the light off.
If the light subsequently turns back on again, then you need to get the
error code read by somebody with an OBD-II scanner.
Most parts carry a 2/24 federal warranty unless the automaker warrants them
The cat and ECU/OBD carry an 8/80 federal warranty.
Oxygen sensors are covered under Honda's normal powertrain warranty, which
I'm pretty sure is 3/36 for the OP.
The O2 sensor costs $220. This job should take about 10 minutes to
replace....I can't imagine that they could charge over 30 minutes to
replace it ~ $270. I would suggest you try finding another shop to get
this replaced at.

Dealer markup is about 60%. This means approximately $120 wholesale price.
OEM is likely made to higher standards than aftermarket offerings,
accounting for any other difference in price.
Honda has been fanatically "green" since the early '70s. They put LOTS of
money into emissions components, and buy the best from their suppliers.
OEM Honda cats are of wildly excellent quality, which is partially why they
cost a thousand dollars new and last the life of the car when cared for.
