Federal Bar Association’s 2022 Qui Tam Conference: The False Claims Act

February 23, 2022

O’Melveny partner David Leviss is a panelist for the Federal Bar Association’s virtual 2022 Qui Tam Conference, “The False Claims Act – Lincoln’s Law Meets the 21st Century.”

Leviss will join a panel discussion on use of the False Claims Act (FCA) to combat the rapidly increasing problem of telehealth fraud. Topics will include recent US Department of Justice settlements, the interaction of criminal and civil remedies, and the difficulty in recouping the substantial amount of public funds that are often obtained through illegal telehealth operations. The panel will also examine the differing perspectives on these issues held by each of the three parties in an FCA case. Leviss will be joined by Amy L. Easton, Partner, Phillips & Cohen LLP; Carolyn Tapie, Assistant US Attorney, US Attorney’s Office, Middle District of Florida; and David Wiseman, Assistant Director, Fraud Section, Civil Division, US Department of Justice, who will serve as moderator.
