Memorandum Regarding Filed Lawsuit





New York Corn & Soybean Growers Association, Inc.

Litigation Commenced in U.S. District Court


Statement of

Association President Steven VanVoorhis



Our Association has received several inquiries regarding a lawsuit against it that has recently been filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of New York. The lawsuit alleges certain improprieties on the part of the Association concerning our governance and administration of internal information. We vigorously deny the allegations.

First, I can confirm that, in fact, a lawsuit has been filed. As I think most people understand, it is not appropriate for the Association to comment in detail on the specifics of ongoing litigation, especially at such an early stage. I can point out, however, that the fact that people make allegations against a group does not make those allegations true – it is easy to make claims against someone.

It is disappointing that individuals have chosen to commence an unnecessary lawsuit in federal court. This litigation will cost our Association and its members valuable time and precious financial resources in what will very possibly be a protracted legal process.

We are reviewing the lawsuit with our advisors and will be responding to the complaint as appropriate and as mandated by the legal system. We ask our members for their support and patience as we sort through this unfortunate development.
