Citigroup Loses on Venue in New York Whistle-Blower Tax Case


Peter Faber said a federal court ruling that Citigroup must defend itself in New York state court against a state tax whistleblower’s claims could “remove one tactic that has been considered by practitioners handling FCA cases. Some people feel that the federal courts may be better fora in which to litigate these cases than the state courts because of their greater knowledge of federal tax law and their distance from the Albany scene.”
