Bradley’s Government Enforcement and Investigations Practice Group is pleased to present the False Claims Act: 2019 Year in Review, our annual review of significant False Claims Act (FCA) cases, developments and trends. The year 2019 reflected more of the common trends: FCA enforcement remains robust, qui tam lawsuits remain ubiquitous, and the healthcare industry remains the most frequent target. The year also marked several notable developments, from increased clarity on the falsity standard in AseraCare from the Eleventh Circuit to Cochise, the lone FCA Supreme Court ruling which resolved conflicting interpretations of the FCA’s statute of limitations. As always, we cover these and the major developments in FCA jurisprudence from last year, along with practitioner-friendly summaries of cases, analysis of policy documents, and a brief forecast for what’s to come in 2020.
