Recent Developments In False Claims Act Litigation

Spring course from the Center for Advance Legal Studies

4 - 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, March 24 and March 31, 2011
Suffolk University Law School
120 Tremont St., Boston

The False Claims Act and its state counterparts are the principal legal tools used to combat fraud on the government. Recent developments in case law and amendments to several statutes have opened new frontiers in whistleblower litigation. These changes affect those who may be eligible for substantial rewards for reporting fraudulent conduct and who may face multi-million dollar liabilities for failing to comply with the requirements of government programs.

The course aims to explain many of the recent changes and provide new insights into this complex type of litigation. Leading practitioners representing all of the participants in False Claims Act litigation, qui tam relators, defendants and federal and state governments, will be present.

Sponsored with the Macaronis Institute for Trial and Appellate Advocacy, Federal Bar Association, Massachusetts Academy for Trial Attorneys and the Massachusetts Defense Lawyers Association.
