1st Circ. Sticks With Revival Of Universal Health FCA Suit


Mark Pearlstein called it “legally incorrect” that the First Circuit refused to reconsider its revival of a False Claims Act case against his healthcare services client. “As we pointed out in our motion for reconsideration, the basis for the opinion was a regulation that was never argued by the relators or anybody in either the district court or the Court of Appeals,” Mr. Pearlstein said, but he added that an appeal of the issue to the US Supreme Court was “not likely.” Laura McLane and Evan Panich also represent the client.
