U.S. Department of Justice Alleges Johnson & Johnson Paid Kickbacks to Steer Nursing Home Prescriptions: Joins Chicago Pharmacist's Whistleblower Case
Date:1/15/2010

Lisitza has been represented by nationally recognized whistleblower lawyers, Michael Behn and Linda Wyetzner, of Behn & Wyetzner, Chartered in Chicago, Illinois. "The government's complaint paints a sordid picture of Johnson & Johnson payola driving sales of drugs to mentally-ill seniors on Medicaid," said Behn. "Pharmacists are trusted professionals. There can be zero tolerance for kickbacks."

The United States is represented in this case by Senior Trial Attorney Laurie A. Oberembt of the U.S. Department of Justice, and Assistant U.S. Attorneys Gregg Shapiro and Christine Wichers of Massachusetts.

Lisitza's action is a "qui tam" suit filed under the False Claims Act. The False Claims Act allows private citizens with knowledge of fraud, known as "relators," to help the government recover ill-gotten gains. False Claims Acts allow the federal and state governments to collect up to three times the amount defrauded, in addition to civil penalties. Behn noted that qui tam relators can receive between 15 and 30 percent of the governments' recovery.

The Johnson & Johnson case is another successful Medicaid fraud qui tam case handled by Behn & Wyetzner, Chartered. In 2006, Omnicare settled another qui tam by the Chicago pharmacist relator Lisitza that recovered nearly $50 million for the United States and 43 states. (
