Clients National retail pharmacy

Jones Day prevailed on behalf of a national retail pharmacy on motions to dismiss two qui tam suits brought under the federal False Claims Act, Anti-Kickback Statute, and Civil Monetary Penalties Law. In a written opinion, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois dismissed both complaints, holding that relator was precluded from proceeding under the False Claims Act's public disclosure bar.
