False Claims Act

The Litigation Center frequently files amicus briefs addressing abuse of the federal False Claims Act (“FCA”) and state analogs, which seriously harms companies across a wide range of industries.   We specifically urge courts to enforce appropriate limits on false-claims liability by applying proper standards for scienter, falsity, materiality, the public-disclosure bar, and calculating damages.  The Litigation Center has also filed amicus briefs supporting the government’s authority to dismiss qui tam suits over relators’ objections.  And we have encouraged courts to enforce proper limits on relators’ ability to allege fraud based on questionable inferences from statistical analyses.
