The Smith Law Firm, LLC, wins defense summary judgment in equitable action to divide stock options

On March 17, 2011, Neil Smith of The Smith Law Firm, LLC, successfully obtained on behalf of our client a defense judgment in which the opposing party sought to recover an unspecified and large sum of money from our client (her ex-husband).  The plaintiff alleged that our client fraudulently failed to disclose that he owned more than 5,000 Monsanto stock options during their marriage.  She alleged that the value of the options exceeded $300,000, and contended that she was entitled to recover some or all of the options.  We filed a motion for summary judgment, which the court granted in its entirety.  The ruling effectively prevented the plaintiff from maintaining her lawsuit, and dismissed her lawsuit with prejudice.  For more information, please see Kristin M. Moore v. Thomas P. Moore, 10SL-CC03684 (St. Louis County).
