George Breen, Chair of the firm’s National Health Care and Life Sciences Practice Steering Committee, will moderate a webinar, “Getting What You Really Need—Preliminary Motions Practice and Discovery in FCA,” Part II of Litigating a False Claims Act Case, a bootcamp series hosted by the AHLA’s Health Care Liability and Litigation Practice Group.
As the number of False Claims Act (FCA) cases filed each year continues to increase, the number of those cases being tried is beginning to rise. This five-part bootcamp webinar series—each session featuring seasoned trial lawyers—is designed to offer insight on the key issues in the litigation of FCA cases, from complaint filing and initial motions practice, through discovery, alternative dispute resolution (ADR), and trial. Each session in this unique series will include perspectives from relator’s, government, and defense counsel panelists; we’ll even include e-discovery, ADR, and jury consultant experts along the way.
In this session, speakers will identify and discuss the special issues that arise in discovery in FCA cases, including:
- Obtaining discovery from government agencies;
- The key focus areas in FCA discovery and the most effective ways to obtain the information you need;
- Discovery disputes: court’s don’t like them, but some things are worth fighting about; and
- E-discovery issues that arise in the FCA case.
