WARNING: This is a complex area of law that is little known by my most lawyers. There are literally thousands of cases that construe the meaning of these statutes. The meaning and application of these statutes depends upon the current case law in your jurisdiction. A skilled attorney with knowledge of the statutes, case law and practices is critical to anyone maintaining a successful action under the False Claims Act.
