Richard Westling, Member of the Firm, participates in the 2024 False Claims Act Mock Trial Institute, which runs from January 17 to 19, hosted by the American Bar Association (ABA).
Richard portrays defense counsel in cross-examining the plaintiff's witness.
The award-winning False Claims Act Mock Trial Institute features a three-day mock jury trial, in which experienced False Claims Act lawyers from the government, relators' and defense bar will try a health care fraud case to a jury, before a sitting judge, in a federal courthouse. A hallmark of this innovative program is the streamed jury deliberations. As the number of False Claims Act cases filed continues to rise, the number of tried cases also increases. The Institute will focus on the unique, and often little understood, discovery, evidentiary and trial challenges that the parties must negotiate to successfully litigate and try a False Claims Act case.
