Miller Baker are among the lawyers who, as counsel for a national chain of clinics and hospitals that is appealing a False Claims Act judgment, urged the US Supreme Court to reject or restrict a controversial legal theory allowing False Claims Act liability when companies bill taxpayers while out of compliance with regulations, calling the theory a “Frankenstein’s monster” with virtually no limits.
