Kang Haggerty member Kandis L. Kovalsky is asked for her opinion in the March 28, 2023 Law360 analysis by editor Jeff Overley on 6th Circ. Widens FCA Split, Curtails Kickback Law’s Scope.
According to Kovalsky, who represents FCA whistleblowers and is an active member of Taxpayers Against Fraud (TAF), “the Sixth Circuit’s decision … has implications far beyond that case itself” and could have “broad, chilling effects on the FCA’s purpose and reach.”
