New York Court Again Rejects Sprint’s Motion to Dismiss $400 Million Qui Tam Case


Arthur Rosen expressed disappointment that a New York court rejected a telecom company’s motion to dismiss a sales and use tax case brought under the state’s expanded false claims act. Mr. Rosen, who filed a Council on State Taxation amicus brief supporting the motion, said, “The fact that the taxpayer was already under audit by the Department of Taxation and Finance shows this was not the type of situation that was intended to come under the whistleblower law. How can you be a ‘whistleblower’ with something that’s already being examined?”
