Qui tam litigation is unique. Doctrinally, qui tam litigation calls into play concepts that are nonexistent in other arenas. Procedurally, qui tam litigation invokes numerous rules unique to qui tam actions that are completely foreign to most federal litigators even though much of qui tam litigation takes place in the federal court system. The purpose of this book, therefore, is to give healthcare practitioners a basic overview of qui tam lawsuits under the FCA from stem to stern. The book begins with a discussion of liability under the FCA, followed by discussions of the pleading, filing, and service requirements; the seal and investigatory period; partial seal lifts and settlement discussion issues; intervention, declination, and its effect on seal and relator.
