Escobar, DOJ Memos, and the FCA: A Brave New World or the Same as it Ever Was?

Thursday, April 19, 2018

Please join us for a webinar discussion on significant cases and developments in the dynamic landscape of False Claims Act (FCA) enforcement.

This program will survey the enforcement efforts of the last year, where the FCA remained a powerful and oft-used tool in the government’s arsenal to combat fraud. With the latest pattern of cases relying heavily on Escobar and the DOJ memoranda sparking a shift toward dismissal of meritless or otherwise problematic qui tam cases, we will look ahead to the implications of these recent developments on future enforcement activity and litigation.

Topics will include:

  • Brief FCA recap
  • Recent Supreme Court and appellate FCA decisions
  • Review of FCA enforcement efforts in 2017
  • Post-Escobar case law developments
  • Government perspectives on enforcement
