In False Claims Act: Whistleblower Litigation, Sixth Edition, practitioners will find discussion of:

  • Pharmaceutical company liability
  • Circuit-by-circuit analysis of Civil Rule 9(b) to FCA complaints
  • Bankruptcy proceedings
  • Statute of limitations for whistleblower employment protections
  • Identifying alternate proceedings
  • Disclosure of defendants' fee information
  • Settlement challenges by realtors, non-settling defendants, and the government
  • State and municipal FCA statutes

Since publication of the Fifth Edition in 2007 by Top Gun Publishing LLC (Cincinnati, Ohio), Congress has amended the FCA three times and the courts have issued more than 2,000 opinions related to the Act. These amendments are fully examined and explained in the Sixth Edition, as are the sometimes conflicting court opinions that have resulted in procedural minefields and other obstacles to proving liability. The Sixth Edition also includes a chapter that details all U.S. Supreme Court opinions related to the Act; a chapter on the numerous state FCAs that have been enacted; and a comprehensive, searchable collection of appendices that provide more than 40 letters, complaints, statements, interrogatories, requests, motions, and affidavits.

With the Sixth Edition, practitioners have all the model forms and procedures needed to effectively litigate qui tam cases. The treatise also includes a table of cases and all versions of this statute and its legislative history, providing a quick reference for both plaintiff and defense attorneys. The Sixth Edition also provides samples of motions in limine used in recent cases; HIPAA and PHSA complaint protective orders; United States Bankruptcy Court Proof of Claim and Application of Trustee to Employ Special Counsel; attorneys' fees and costs application, declaration of counsel, and affidavit in support of an expert; and jury instructions, special interrogatories, and verdict form.

False Claims Act: Whistleblower Litigation, Sixth Edition is authored by James B. Helmer, Jr. , a Senior Partner and President of Helmer, Martins, Rice & Popham Co., L.P.A., in Cincinnati, Ohio. The previous edition was published by Top Gun Publishing LLC (Cincinnati, Ohio).
