Former U.S. Attorneys Highlighted Bradley in False Claims Act Victory
The National Association of Former United States Attorneys (NAFUSA) highlighted Bradley's recent False Claims Act (FCA) victory in United States ex rel. Paradies v. AseraCare, Inc. A federal judge struck down a $200 million FCA case against AseraCare, holding that the government’s second guessing of physicians’ medical judgment alone cannot prove false claims.
Judge Karon Bowdre granted summary judgment for the defendant, finding that the government failed to prove its case, as “[a] mere difference of opinion between physicians, without more, is not enough to show falsity.”
