Heptinstall, et. al. v. "New" Monsanto Company, et.al.


Bryan Cave representing the interest of Pharmacia f/k/a "Old" Monsanto Company, Inc. n/k/a Pfizer, and the
successor entity "New" Monsanto Company, Inc. as surrogates for Solutia Inc.,  represented New Monsanto
Company was the successor entity responsible for vested pensions under "Old" Monsanto's Pension Plan.
After stipulating to the court's equitable jurisdiction and the entitlement to a vested pension benefit
Defendants reneged and appealed. Defendants characterizing the action as a legal claim for benefits under the
Plan established precedent blocking access to the courts for all former employees ensuring forfeiture and a
"tax" free windfall of millions for Old Monsanto Company its successors and officers.

Criminal Act 18 U.S.C. § 1027 (knowingly giving false statements in records required by ERISA).
