David Chizewer, a Principal in the firm's Litigation Group, is quoted in the Bloomberg Law article, "High Court Sides With Plaintiffs on False Claims Timeliness," published May 13, 2019.
The article discusses the U.S. Supreme Court's recent unanimous ruling adopting the False Claims Act standard that allows a whistleblower to rely on a three-year filing period when the government declines to intervene.
“The number of cases, in practice, that actually will be materially affected by this decision may be limited. But the broader message is impactful,” Chizewer said. “The court affirmed that whistleblowers pursuing cases without government intervention are fulfilling a function on par with cases the government brings or joins.”
