Effectively litigate qui tam cases with this definitive guide
“This unique practice area is fraught with judicial pitfalls and circuit splits, challenging the most circumspect practitioner. However, with the assistance of Helmer’s treatise, potential stumbling blocks become stepping stones, providing a vantage point for anticipating legal and tactical challenges.”—Joseph E. B. White, Nolan & Auerbach., P.A., Former President and CEO,Taxpayers Against Fraud Education Fund and Editor, False Claims Act & Qui Tam Quarterly Review
The False Claims Act is one of the most litigated pieces of legislation ever enacted by Congress, with more than 8,000 claims filed under the Act since 1986 and $30 billion in taxpayer funds recovered. The Act turns 150 years old in 2013, but years of judicial interpretations have greatly complicated the process of bringing a case under the Act. Amendments in 2009 and 2010 helped simplify this process, but many nuances and hurdles remain. Written by the trial lawyer called to testify before Congress on ways to modernize, update, and streamline the Act in the 1980s, and again in 2008, False Claims Act: Whistleblower Litigation, Sixth Edition provides expert guidance and analysis of the Act and the many different legislative developments and judicial opinions surrounding it. Previously published by Top Gun Publishing LLC (Cincinnati, OH), this treatise offers insightful and authoritative experience on the subject from the most experienced False Claims Act lawyer in the country.
