PSD Wins Dismissal of Maryland False Claims Act Case With Prejudice

PSD represented a former employer in the District of Maryland. The former employee brought claims that the employer violated the False Claims Act, that certain officers conspired to violate the False Claims Act, and that the employer fired the employee in retaliation for her reporting wrongdoing and refusing to violate the law herself. The federal court dismissed all claims with prejudice. A copy of the opinion can be found at this link: 181028 Memorandum Opinion and Order Dismissing with Prejudice

PSD made a novel argument over the language in the specific claim forms and focused on the lack of quality of the plaintiff’s reporting of the issue.
