False Claims Act

Enforcement actions under the U.S. False Claims Act (FSA) continue to increase. The Department of Justice (DOJ) recently released a report highlighting a substantial rise in total of number of cases brought by both the government and qui tam relators. In recent years, settlements and judgments under the FCA exceeded $2.2 billion and the government posted its second-highest number of settlements and judgments in a single year, with most of the enforcement activity aimed at the healthcare industry and in cyber fraud. This data demonstrates a consistently upward trend of government enforcement.
