Member David S. Mitchell, Jr. authored an article examining the False Claims Act

Rose Law Firm member David S. Mitchell, Jr. authored an article for The Arkansas Lawyer examining the False Claims Act, 31 U.S.C. §§ 3729 – 3733, and highlighting a few emerging issues and trends in False Claims Act litigation.  In addition to reviewing the history, significance, and basics of the False Claims Act, David identifies two developing issues currently at the forefront of False Claims Act litigation: (i) an increased focus on individual accountability, and (ii) the implied certification theory of False Claims Act liability.

The full article, “An Introduction to the False Claims Act” was published in the Summer 2016 issue of The Arkansas Lawyer, a publication of the Arkansas Bar Association, and is available below:
