The False Claim Act (FCA) is the government's most powerful tool in combating fraud against government programs. Whistleblowers continue to be the driving force behind those actions and the often enormous recoveries they generate. This course will cover the basics of whistleblower actions under the FCA, so-called qui tam actions, and will highlight some of the recent trends and developments in this dynamic area of law. We will provide an overview of the FCA's provisions, highlight recent decisions by the United States Supreme Court and review some of the government's common investigative strategies for these cases. Finally, we will discuss what to expect in this area of law during 2021 and beyond.
