Omnicare (NYSE: OCR) Agrees to Pay United States $120 Million to Settle False Claims Act Suit Alleging Kickbacks
Date:10/24/2013

Brooks, head of Sanford Heisler's False Claims Act practice and one of Mr. Gale's lawyers in the case.

"Mr. Gale has achieved a remarkable settlement on behalf of the United States, which he has asked the Justice Department to approve.  This settlement," Brooks added, "should send a clear message to companies who would engage in government fraud that whistleblowers have the ability to go the distance when necessary to return defrauded taxpayer funds to the federal treasury."  Brooks noted that this is one of the largest settlements of a qui tam case in which the Justice Department declined to intervene.

The False Claims Act creates a unique and powerful public/private partnership for the pursuit of fraud claims by whistleblowers.  Mr. Gale's legal team worked in close coordination with attorneys of the Department of Justice's Civil Division in Washington and the Office of Northern District of Ohio United States Attorney Steven M. Dettlebach.

The case remains pending until final resolution before United States District Judge James S. Gwin of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio.

The legal team at Sanford Heisler LLP included Ross B. Brooks, Rolando G. Marquez and Michael D. Palmer in the firm's New York office.  The Sanford Heisler team was co-counsel to attorneys from Morgan Verkamp, LLC, Calfee, Halter & Griswold LLP and Berger & Montague, PC.
