Lieff Cabraser partner Lexi J. Hazam will participate in a panel discussion on the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2016 ruling in Universal Health Services v. Escobar at the American Association for Justice (AAJ) 2017 Annual Convention in Boston as part of the Qui Tam Litigation Group CLE on July 23, 2017. The panel discussion Ms. Hazam will be featured on will be taking place from 10:00-11:30am at the Hynes Convention Center.
Along with fellow panelists Tejinder Singh and Brandon Mark, Ms. Hazam’s discussion will focus on the landmark Escobar ruling, where the Supreme Court held that half-truths omitting critical qualifying information can be actionable misrepresentations providing a basis for fraud-on-the-government prosecution under the False Claims Act.
