Excerpt from Editor's Note

Welcome to Patton Boggs' inaugural False Claims Act (FCA) newsletter,

FCA Focus. As the Department of Justice (DOJ) celebrates the 25th

anniversary of the statute's 1986 amendments, which catapulted the FCA

into prominence as the United States' preferred tool for recovering money

from fraud, and as the use of the statute continues to expand, we feel that

the time is right to focus a newsletter on this particular statute across all

industries.

Please see full newsletter below for more information.
