False Claims Act and Wrongful Discharge

Aug 15, 2011

Provided theme development and strategy consultation to the defense in a matter in which a former employee alleged that his termination violated the federal False Claims Act. Specifically, the former employee alleged that he was fired in retaliation for his effort to stop one or more alleged violations of the FCA. We consulted with the defense on themes and arguments likely to resonate with a jury in the Southern District of Indiana, Indianapolis Division, as well as on trial presentation strategies. Summary judgment was granted in our client’s favor shortly before the scheduled trial date.
