Kraus Quoted on Hutcheson v. Blackstone

01 September 2011 InsideCounsel News

Foley Partner Lawrence Kraus was quoted in an article that appeared in InsideCounsel on September 1, 2011 titled "Decision Raises the Bar for Defending False Claims Act Cases." Kraus discusses a 1st Circuit decision establishing that non-submitting entities can be liable for false claims filed by others, a case which Kraus said could raise the bar for companies to succeed in a motion to dismiss in the early stages of a 1st Circuit proceeding. He adds that the case demonstrates the increasing need to implement internal compliance programs that are embraced by management as well as the importance of investigating potential issues as they arise.
