« FTC's Pay for Delay Case Against Cephalon Moves Forward | Main | Kramer Seeks Re-Appointment as D.C. Federal Public Defender »

March 30, 2010



The False Claims Act has been sorely in need of clarification as to what constitutes a public disclosure. With this new standard in place, whistleblower cases will be able to move forward with much less confusion.

To the previous commentor, I would note that whistleblowers are the greatest source of government fraud recoveries. Also, as any first year law student would have learned, nearly any attorney could end up doing "plaintiff" or "defense" work, depending on which client shows up at his or her door, and depending on the facts of their case. Do you really think the False Claims Act has a cheerleading "Plaintiff's Bar" that showers Congress with lobbying money?


The Obamacare Act is full of such hidden nuggets for B.O.'s allies such as the plaintiff's bar. We'll be seeing many more surprises. That's what happens when a bill is written by lobbyists and shoved through Congress without people reading it.
