Lieff Cabraser partner Rachel Geman will be presenting a Lawline course on “The Anatomy of a False Claims Act Case & How the FCA Works in a Whistleblower World” on October 11, 2017 at 10am EST. The program will cover cases in which the government declines to intervene, the expansion of whistleblower programs and claims, and additional recent developments.
Ms. Geman will be discussing the anatomy of a False Claims Act case, involving the investigation and preparation of the complaint and disclosure statement, the relator interview, and making a decision on whether to handle this case matter alone without the government’s assistance.
The course’s learning objectives are to identify what “bucket” a whistleblower case may fit into, understand current case law trends under the FCA, and assess specific ways in which litigating a non-intervened case differs from litigating other fraud cases, on one hand, and an intervened FCA case, on the other.
