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.”
According to Overley, “The Sixth Circuit delivered a one-two punch to whistleblowers and the U.S. Department of Justice on Tuesday by requiring False Claims Act cases to directly connect kickbacks with health care billing and refusing to view all potentially valuable actions as possible kickbacks.”
