Third Circuit finds individual ownership interest in corporation not required for False Claims Act liability
USA | 24 April 2019

The Third Circuit recently affirmed and vacated in part a district court ruling granting the United States' motion for summary judgment. The case raised, among other things, the issue of whether an individual without any ownership interests in a company can face False Claims Act liability for the company's failure to perform a required act to qualify for reimbursement and whether an unsworn statement is sufficient to create a material issue of fact when weighed against facts admitted during a plea colloquy.
