Join us for this USLAW Business Litigation EduNet Webinar on Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013, from 1-2 p.m. ET.
Qui Tam/False Claims investigations and litigation are on the rise in various industries such as healthcare and pharmaceutical, energy, oil & gas, government procurement and education. False Claims cases are reaching billions of dollars in alleged false billings (Halifax), while settlements are being obtained from well-respected institutions such as Baylor University ($1 Million), Northwestern University ($3 Million), Shands Healthcare ($26 Million). Other False Claims targets have proceeded to trial this year with devastating results with possibly $357 million in damages. Still, there are many federal district court and circuit opinions which are beneficial to defending a False Claims case and strategies which have worked to either have such cases dismissed or obtain de minimis settlements. This one hour briefing that offers a particular focus for Business Litigation, Insurance, White Collar and Healthcare practice areas, will discuss the recent settlements, jury verdicts and case law trends and strategies which have worked to resolve recent False Claims cases.
