In recent years, whistleblower lawsuits have led to billions of dollars in judgments and settlements, debarment from government contracts, and criminal prosecutions as prosecutors and the public seek to root out fraud and abuse.
Federal False Claims Act and Qui Tam Litigation is a unique guide to this vital area. Unlike many treatises that focus solely on the plaintiff whistleblower or “relator,” this book provides detailed comprehensive coverage of the interests of all the participants in qui tam cases—the relator, the defendant corporation, the federal and state governments, and the courts.
Topics include: evaluating the merits of a potential action; determining whether the relator would be barred or restricted from any recovery for retaliation; for plaintiffs, locating a favorable judiciary and an aggressive prosecutor's office; for defendants, anticipating, preventing, and responding to litigation; determining whether a claim is material and based on express or implied certification, government indifference or concurrence with erroneous certifications; evolving theories of liability; assessing an appropriate relator’s share of any recovery; parallel criminal actions; and more.
Each chapter concludes with detailed analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of significant cases for the realtor, the defense, the government, and the judiciary. This is a book that will help all parties understand and master the challenges of this important and growing field.
